The People's Republic of Edrarin is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Xander Feng with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ritual sacrifices, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.279 billion Edrinians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beijing. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.8%.
The thriving Edrarinian economy, worth 110 trillion Edrar Rubles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Information Technology, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 86,572 Edrar Rubles, with the richest citizens earning 9.1 times as much as the poorest.
Billions of Edrar Rubles are being poured into a space program, Xander Feng has just been declared ruler of Edrarin in an international press conference, Air Edrarin is rumored to receive more government funding than the Edrarinian Air Force, and group photos of the members of parliament are often mistaken for family reunions. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Edrarin's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
