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 multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.486 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yokohidaka. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Hidokan economy, worth 227 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 153,301 Yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, visions of giant pink Moon Bears are a common side effect after Hidokii eat their meals, and the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge. 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 146,908th in the world and 7,344th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -20.25 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
