The Cul-de-Sac of Cul-Ed-Sac is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Eds with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.875 billion Cullies 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Peach Creek. The average income tax rate is 49.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cul-Ed-Sackian economy, worth 878 trillion quarters a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 180,265 quarters, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Government spending has hit an all-time low, the name of the "Butcher of Bigtopia" adorns shirts across Cul-Ed-Sac, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and teddy bear James Dean (aka "the Rebel Without the Claws") helps convince kids that candy cigarettes are cool. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cul-Ed-Sac's national animal is the monster chicken, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cult De Sac.

Cul-Ed-Sac is ranked 11,196th in the world and 380th in The East Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 27.61 Bank.
