Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Empire of Edon-Ko is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Premier Saito Kazuhiro with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, state-planned economy, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.872 billion Hidokii 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 prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yokohidaka. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Hidokan economy, worth 300 trillion Yen 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 160,299 Yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, Hidokii incessantly needle their doctors for relief, and foreign despots proudly bandstand on Hidokan airwaves. 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 Shinto.

Edon-Ko is ranked 33,354th in the world and 988th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 319.5443093804 Days.
