The Universal Republic of Edgelandia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Ned Edgewalker with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 14.825 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 enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Environment are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Westbrook. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Edgelandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,327 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 Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 156,984 Edgebucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Foreign Ministry thinks an eye for an eye is a blindingly good idea, enemy agents are generally eliminated with extreme prejudice, enemy combatants are presumed guilty until proven innocent, and children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again. 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 Agnosticism.

Edgelandia is ranked 5,214th in the world and 1st in The Meme Must Go On for Best Weather, with 300 Meters Of Sunlight.
