The Empire of ElectronicDataSystems is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 39.414 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse ElectronicDataSystemsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,889 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 73,313 Platinum Pieces, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 196,844th in the world and 120th in Texas for Most Primitive, scoring -140.32 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
