The Infection of Edgemaster is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Haruhi Suzumiya with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, aversion to nipples, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 27.526 billion Burst Linkians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. 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 21,933 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 796,833 Gils, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,090,141 per year while the poor average 85,013, a ratio of 48.1 to 1.

Ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, organisations with 800 in their phone number are often raided by special forces, the diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room, and Haruhi Suzumiya's recent "I have a dream that we will fight them by raking muck on the beaches" speech seems a little derivative to many. 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 124th in the world and 2nd in Capitalist Paradise for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 858.73 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
