The Infection of Edgemaster is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Haruhi Suzumiya with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 19.882 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.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as the Environment and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seireitei. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing industries.

The government has the power to seize property at will, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, Humongo-Mart's Beef 'n Hollow Lasagne is a hit, and newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Edgemaster's national animal is the Hollow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Haruhiism, and its currency is the Gil.

Edgemaster is ranked 2nd in Capitalist Paradise and 19th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 35 on the Hayek Index.
