The Republic of Edgedgie is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its daily referendums, otherworldly petting zoo, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.171 billion Edgedgieans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken 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 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Edgedgiean economy, worth a remarkable 1,577 trillion Dgies a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 193,017 Dgies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Leader's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Stag Dung" has been declared a national treasure, children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, and census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate. 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 227,363rd in the world and 6,906th in the Rejected Realms for Most Primitive, scoring -599.5 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
