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 renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.335 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 14,098 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 660,816 Gils, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,605,068 per year while the poor average 32,876, a ratio of 140 to 1.

Streaming video is considered to be a myth by most citizens, the national sporting identity is represented by a talking burger and a singing smartphone, the dead are minced up and sold to people in burger form, and citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes. 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 Soda Pop Sector, scoring 34 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
