The Holy Empire of New Edom is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Elijah and Queen Mara with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, parental licensing program, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 18.853 billion New Edomites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fineberg. The average income tax rate is 82.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Edomian economy, worth a remarkable 2,179 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 frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,631 Coppers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, kids building model rockets in their backyard are grounded by Space Agency Rangers, school children are forced to sing the national anthem every morning, and election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes. 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 5,484th in the world and 3rd in The Cornellian Empire for Most Cultured, scoring 142 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
