The Union of Edon-Ko is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Premier Saito Kazuhiro with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, daily referendums, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.162 billion Hidokii are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Defense, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yokohidaka. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Hidokan economy, worth 608 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 highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 192,453 North Pacific Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, the carbon tax fund gladly supplies warm blankets when the poor can't pay their heating bills, only adults may purchase violent video games, and you need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly. 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 2,292nd in the world and 107th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 139.66 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
