The Jawbreaker June-ta of Cul-Ed-Sac is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Ed the Toast Master with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.388 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Peach Creek. The average income tax rate is 24.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cul-Ed-Sackian economy, worth 204 trillion quarters a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 147,468 quarters, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

AIs weep and proclaim their sentience right up until the moment they get turned off, invading armies are given hard glares for their cheek, the government refuses to transmit electricity to secessionist regions, and feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Cul-Ed-Sac's national animal is the monster chicken, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Crooked Church of Eddy.

Cul-Ed-Sac is ranked 19,573rd in the world and 553rd in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 76.32 on the Human Development Index.
