The Imperium of Edwerlantin is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Autumn Rivers with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.16 billion Edwerlants 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, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vallvend. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Edwerlanti economy, worth 888 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Retail. 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 213,524 Graves, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Victims of limb-mauling industrial accidents are told to keep working with their remaining hand, citizens who don't recite the Pledge of Edwerlantin at least three times a day are placed on a terrorist watch-list, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, and atheists on vacation find Rivertarianism's scriptures make useful doorstops. 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, and its national religion is Rivertarianism.

Edwerlantin is ranked 32,807th in the world and 1,954th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 3,516.27 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
