The Universal States of Edgelandia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Ned Edgewalker with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The compassionate, cynical population of 11.064 billion Edgelandians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Westbrook. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Edgelandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,440 trillion Edgebucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 130,216 Edgebucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, Edgelandia is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, the government is funneling billions into Cape Edgelandia following the shuttle crash, and machine gun nests are the latest must-have gardening trend. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Edgelandia's national animal is the Grey Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Based Haitchism.

Edgelandia is ranked 13,258th in the world and 3rd in The Meme Must Go On for Most Corrupt Governments, with 70.14 Kickbacks Per Hour.
