The Horselands of Edorask is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Theoden with a fair hand, and renowned for its digital currency, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 19.545 billion Edoraskians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Helms Deep. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Edoraskian economy, worth a remarkable 2,535 trillion crowns a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,711 crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Edoraskians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, and most politicians belong to the Church of the Divine Kickback. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Edorask's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Edorask is ranked 12,205th in the world and 168th in 10000 Islands for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 4,055.08 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
