Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Infection of Edgemaster is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Haruhi Suzumiya with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.254 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 Environment and Social Policy not 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 14,996 trillion Gils a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 673,856 Gils, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,010,801 per year while the poor average 10,057, a ratio of 597 to 1.

Hollow racing stadiums are open 24/7, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, mobile phone masts are being erected all over the country, and surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods. 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 6th in Capitalist Paradise and 116th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 2,472 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
