The Incandescent Kingdom of Edwerlantin is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Sekien Suzuki with an iron fist, and notable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.248 billion Edwerlantians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vallvend. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Edwerlantinian economy, worth 658 trillion Graves a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 202,617 Graves, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The media have begun calling the government treasury "Sekien Suzuki's stash", there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, and the government is pouring billions into replacement brains. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Edwerlantin's national animal is the Red-Tailed Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Edwerlantin is ranked 176,813th in the world and 9,927th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 9.17 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
