Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Infection of Edgemaster is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Haruhi Suzumiya with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.739 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 aren't funded at all. 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 17,104 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 720,504 Gils, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,738,300 per year while the poor average 21,507, a ratio of 266 to 1.

Hammering a nail into a wall is an effective death sentence, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, hundreds of thousands of convicts work as slaves in Edgemaster's many privately-owned prisons, and the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry. 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 193,235th in the world and 385th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -84.97 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
