The Imperium of Edwerlantin is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Autumn Rivers with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, infamous sell-swords, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.691 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, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. 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 a remarkable 1,068 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, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. 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 227,835 Graves, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Residential tower blocks are surrounded by warrens of concrete tunnels, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles distance from the National Science Park, doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, and joggers are often arrested for breathing too heavily. 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 26,588th in the world and 1,131st in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 247,841.02 Standard Monetary Units.
