Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Infection of Edgemaster is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Haruhi Suzumiya with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 25.021 billion Burst Linkians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 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 19,022 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 Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 760,277 Gils, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,002,875 per year while the poor average 44,969, a ratio of 111 to 1.

The government spends its days financing the delocalisation of its own economy, heart attacks are regarded as a coming of age ritual, priests are being drafted by the church load, and 'dead men tell no tales' is a valid legal defense. 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 178,177th in the world and 314th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 5.84 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
