The Union of Edon-Ko is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Premier Saito Kazuhiro with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.786 billion Hidokii 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Defense, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yokohidaka. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Hidokan economy, worth 512 trillion North Pacific Francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 183,948 North Pacific Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Edon-Ko's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, books are so highly regarded in Edon-Ko that libraries are often revered as holy shrines, and grumbling early morning commuters bemoan having to travel to work in the dark. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Edon-Ko's national animal is the Moon Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Edon-Ko is ranked 96,551st in the world and 5,227th in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 36.54 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
