The Union of Edon-Ko is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Premier Saito Kazuhiro with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, national health service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.58 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, Administration, and Defense 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 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Hidokan economy, worth 930 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 203,184 North Pacific Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, people who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, and films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay. 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 158,484th in the world and 8,074th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -24.04 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
