The Infection of Edgemaster is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Haruhi Suzumiya with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 24.054 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 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 17,640 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 733,355 Gils, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,556,794 per year while the poor average 50,674, a ratio of 89.9 to 1.

Burst Linkian athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, and cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. 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 37th in the world and 2nd in Capitalist Paradise for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 119.28 Whatever.
