The Incandescent Kingdom of Edwerlantin is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sekien Suzuki with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.788 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, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, 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 94.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Edwerlantinian economy, worth 749 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 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 impressive 197,887 Graves, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Disposable antiseptic wipes are considered a social necessity, citizens are told that foreigners are hungry ghosts who eat the flesh of the overly curious, liberals and conservatives try to disqualify each other's candidates on the grounds that "their ideas would never work in the real world", and maritime signalling has become tedious since only the Edwerlantinian flag can be displayed. 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 126,882nd in the world and 6,357th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 29.43 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
