The Empire of ElectronicDataSystems is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 43.64 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 Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 75.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse ElectronicDataSystemsian economy, worth a remarkable 3,317 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 76,027 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 309,634th in the world and 118th in Texas for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -17.2 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
