The Infection of Edgemaster is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Haruhi Suzumiya with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent medical pandemics, enslaved workforce, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.997 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, 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 13,967 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 Gambling, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 665,201 Gils, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,297,851 per year while the poor average 19,856, a ratio of 266 to 1.

Travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, the public are free to vote for whomever the government wants in office, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, and graffiti graces every city's streets. 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 435th in Capitalist Paradise and 116,247th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring -660 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
