Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Infection of Edgemaster is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Haruhi Suzumiya with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, enforced nudity, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.165 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 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 13,912 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 657,349 Gils, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,409,043 per year while the poor average 68,678, a ratio of 49.6 to 1.

The Hollow is believed to be extinct, prominent cultural symbols are featured on the backs of cereal boxes, women wear burqas to avoid unwanted male attention, and billions are being spent on a new island airport. 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 2nd in Capitalist Paradise and 6th in the world for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 35 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
