The Edgy Puppet Name of Edge of Life is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, devout population of 3.972 billion Edge of Lifeans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 38.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Edge of Lifean economy, worth 209 trillion guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Soda Sales, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 52,864 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby, cows with strange deformities like three eyes and tentacles have been seen prancing through the countryside where industrial waste is dumped, Leader has no checks and balances after the upper house was abolished, and trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Edge of Life's national animal is the cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
