The Colony of Edmundian Pluto is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Governor Atwell with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 2.319 billion Edmundian Plutonians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Edward. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Edmundian Plutonian economy, worth 370 trillion Great Edmundian Royals a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 159,568 Great Edmundian Royals, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 456,201 per year while the poor average 44,456, a ratio of 10.3 to 1.

It is common to still see adults with training wheels on their bikes, blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love, conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, and child adoption by homosexual couples has been outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Edmundian Pluto's national animal is the Asian Small-Clawed Otter, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Church of Edmundia.

Edmundian Pluto is ranked 10,694th in the world and 5th in The Interdimensional Community for Most Corrupt Governments, with 85.15 Kickbacks Per Hour.
