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 notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, enslaved workforce, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.857 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 17,287 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 724,640 Gils, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,936,140 per year while the poor average 18,827, a ratio of 315 to 1.

Governments opposing Edgemaster are beset by rebels, the nation has declared war on all passing comets, foreign governments are looking into weaponizing the infamous Burst Linkian bee, and the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists. 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 182,082nd in the world and 386th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1.89 Tourists Per Hour.
