The Infection of Edgemaster is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Haruhi Suzumiya with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 36.943 billion Burst Linkians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized 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 30,149 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 816,097 Gils, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,628,546 per year while the poor average 41,955, a ratio of 134 to 1.

AI nannies tell children who refuse to go to bed that "my logic is undeniable", netizens fiercely argue over who loves Haruhi Suzumiya more, Edgemaster is suspiciously populated compared to its neighbors, and the strong are acquitted and the weak are trampled in trial by a Hollow. 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 271,676th in the world and 245th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Beautiful Environments, with 0.43 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
