“Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam”

Regional Influence: Minnow
The Empire of Edvardus is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Damian with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate population of 14.578 billion Edvardusians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Religion & Spirituality, Education, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial City. The average income tax rate is 48%, but much higher for the wealthy. A large private sector is dominated by the Automobile Manufacturing industry.
The government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, it is now illegal for teens to view any sites except Club Kitten and My Little Donkey, the government enforces a policy of 'from each according to their ability, to each according to the available budget', and citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone. Crime is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Edvardus's national animal is the dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Roman Catholicism, and its currency is the dollar.
