The Holy Dromedan Ascendancy of Ediola is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Cornelius An'Hum with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.572 billion Ediolans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bastion. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Ediolan economy, worth 586 trillion Cors a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 164,235 Cors, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, conspiracy theorists allege Bastion's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, and glamping Ediolans won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ediola's national animal is the Exceed, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cornelian Theory.

Ediola is ranked 5,288th in the world and 266th in The North Pacific for Best Weather, with 259 Meters Of Sunlight.
