The Union of Edon-Ko is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Premier Saito Kazuhiro with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.701 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, with Welfare, Defense, and Administration also on the agenda, 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 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Hidokan economy, worth 742 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 amazing 200,660 North Pacific Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is an abondance of ackawi and zartschmelzend in every Hidokan grocery store, relationships often break down when doctors tell couples they are genetically incompatible, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, and children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary. 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 51,273rd in the world and 2,733rd in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 67.08 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
