The Empire of ElectronicDataSystems is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its hatred of cheese, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 34.349 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, Defense, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 71.7%.

The thriving ElectronicDataSystemsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,232 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 65,007 Platinum Pieces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 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 59,536th in the world and 83rd in Texas for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 90.88 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
