The Empire of Edenlegaia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Saris Cross with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, digital currency, and state-planned economy. The compassionate population of 14.158 billion Laethanians 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.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lis-Salith. The average income tax rate is 93.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Laethanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,173 trillion Zennies 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 153,517 Zennies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Defense lawyers suggestively note to juries how flagrantly happy victims were, money can't buy happiness but it can buy immunity to prosecution, the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, and military information leaks are **REDACTED** by **REDACTED** in **REDACTED**. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Edenlegaia's national animal is the Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Edenlegaia is ranked 141,892nd in the world and 4,764th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 56.95 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
