Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Infection of Edgemaster is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Haruhi Suzumiya with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.508 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, although Industry is also considered important, 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 14,263 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 663,167 Gils, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,477,273 per year while the poor average 16,496, a ratio of 332 to 1.

Surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, commuter vessels have trouble staying afloat due to increased passengers, almost all the visible space on TV screens is taken up by advertising, and the dead are minced up and sold to people in burger form. 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 460th in Capitalist Paradise and 140,549th in the world for Safest, scoring -5,758.8 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
