The Holy Dromedan Ascendancy of Ediola is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Nym Su-Do with a fair hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.933 billion Ediolans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bastion. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Ediolan economy, worth a remarkable 1,265 trillion Cors a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 213,244 Cors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Basic multiplication is all you need to know to have a child, contestants on Ediola's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent, bike rage is all the rage, and failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ediola's national animal is the Excellian Wing, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Imperial Theory of Action.

Ediola is ranked 159,001st in the world and 8,104th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -25.38 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
