The Republic of Edgedgie is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.136 billion Edgedgieans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Édgerie. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Edgedgiean economy, worth 726 trillion Dgies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 175,730 Dgies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, Harry Potter conventions are closely watched by the government for any signs of 'dueling', Leader is famed for giving great back rubs, and recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Edgedgie's national animal is the stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Edgedgie is ranked 988th in the world and 27th in the Rejected Realms for Most Developed, scoring 97.65 on the Human Development Index.
