The Infection of Edgemaster is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Haruhi Suzumiya with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 35.673 billion Burst Linkians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 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 29,412 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 824,507 Gils, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 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 248,111th in the world and 252nd in Capitalist Paradise for Most Beautiful Environments, with 0.43 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
