Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Infection of Edgemaster is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Haruhi Suzumiya with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, smutty television, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 24.24 billion Burst Linkians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seireitei. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Burst Linkian economy, worth an astonishing 17,929 trillion Gils a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 739,648 Gils, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,066,463 per year while the poor average 38,842, a ratio of 130 to 1.

Crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, randomly bombing neighboring countries has become the new national sport, and the public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Edgemaster's national animal is the Hollow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Haruhiism.

Edgemaster is ranked 1,113th in the world and 4th in Capitalist Paradise for Nudest, with 1,212.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
