The Union of Edon-Ko is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Premier Saito Kazuhiro with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.067 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, although Welfare, Administration, and Defense are also considered important, 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 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Hidokan economy, worth 818 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 201,137 North Pacific Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, the Hidokan Babysitters Club has proven to be a huge relief to stressed-out parents across the nation, it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, and hospitals in Edon-Ko are too busy serving the needs of The North Pacific to see Hidokii. 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 32,069th in the world and 1,539th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 225,395.43 Standard Monetary Units.
