The Infection of Edgemaster is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Haruhi Suzumiya with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, public floggings, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 33.731 billion Burst Linkians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seireitei. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Burst Linkian economy, worth an astonishing 27,984 trillion Gils a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 829,629 Gils, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Allergy-sufferers must wear gas masks before venturing outdoors, phenotypic plasticity is a struggle for sealife in polluted waters, the new one Gil coin also makes a handy throwing-star, and children who believe in the tooth fairy are frequently shipped off to Bigtopia. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Edgemaster's national animal is the Hollow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Haruhiism.

Edgemaster is ranked 231,042nd in the world and 310th in Capitalist Paradise for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -71.34 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
