Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Infection of Edgemaster is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Haruhi Suzumiya with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, ubiquitous missile silos, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 24.633 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, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. 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 18,487 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 750,504 Gils, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,443,251 per year while the poor average 58,497, a ratio of 76.0 to 1.

Citizens are frequently held up at gunpoint by their local pizza delivery boys, the Great Edgemaster Desert is reputedly the most uninhabitable place in the region, sushi just hasn't been the same since salmon went extinct overnight, and hundreds of thousands of convicts work as slaves in Edgemaster's many privately-owned prisons. 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 101st in the world and 2nd in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 53,505.07 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
