The Allied States of New Edom is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Brigadier-General Perrin Pahath-Moab with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.858 billion New Edomians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fineberg. The average income tax rate is 65.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient New Edomian economy, worth a remarkable 1,022 trillion Coppers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,470 Coppers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, tax rises are attributed to divine will, and the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Edom's national animal is the Griffon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The New Edomite Apostolic Church.
