The United Socialist States of Edenis is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its vat-grown people, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.439 billion Edenisians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neo Tokyo. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Edenisian economy, worth 538 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 156,522 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, hospitals in Edenis are too busy serving the needs of Lazarus to see Edenisians, and childhood friends of Leader are living it large abroad at the taxpayers' expense. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Edenis's national animal is the Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Edenis is ranked 2,546th in the world and 126th in Lazarus for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 83.9 Workforce Participation Rate.
