Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Infection of Edgemaster is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Haruhi Suzumiya with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 25.303 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 government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. 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 19,425 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 Soda Sales, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 767,696 Gils, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,440,250 per year while the poor average 63,232, a ratio of 70.2 to 1.

A survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Seireitei, and robosexual marriages are increasingly common. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. 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 8,090th in the world and 44th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Stationary, with 1,088.66596992 Days.
