The Empire of ElectronicDataSystems is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 36.379 billion ElectronicDataSystemsians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Environment, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving ElectronicDataSystemsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,510 trillion Platinum Pieces a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 69,022 Platinum Pieces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, a cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country, ElectronicDataSystems's Medieval Faire is renowned as one of the best in the region, and refugees from other nations are flocking to ElectronicDataSystems's border. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ElectronicDataSystems's national animal is the Furry Robotic Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

ElectronicDataSystems is ranked 24,238th in the world and 45th in Texas for Most Developed, scoring 77.04 on the Human Development Index.
