Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Allied States of New Edom is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Elijah and Queen Mara with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 13.173 billion New Edomites have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fineberg. The average income tax rate is 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Edomian economy, worth a remarkable 1,588 trillion Coppers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,586 Coppers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jaywalking is punishable by public flogging, tourists flock to see the giant stone carvings of New Edom's historical leaders at Mount Rushless, King Elijah and Queen Mara's latest speech included a bizarre reference to MaxWow incontinence pads being 50% more absorbent than the next leading brand, and children regularly take part in blood sports that result in extreme boo-boos. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Edom's national animal is the Griffon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The New Edomite Apostolic Church.

New Edom is ranked 159,121st in the world and 35th in The Cornellian Empire for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -8.83 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
