The Union of Edon-Ko is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Premier Saito Kazuhiro with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.21 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 98.0%.
The frighteningly efficient Hidokan economy, worth 362 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 164,044 North Pacific Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
A government program is underway to revitalize Edon-Ko's beaches, the new national mascot has to be wheeled onto the field of play, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "Love and peace!" as a way of life, and military training in Edon-Ko emphasizes the tactical advantages of stabbing backs. 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.
