The Kingdom of Republic of edward is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by king edward 1st with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 20.029 billion Republic of edwardians 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of carpathia. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Republic of edwardian economy, worth a remarkable 1,691 trillion dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 84,446 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The mummified remains of former kings are apparently discovered every time a tourist loses their wallet, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, and religious citizens are closely monitored for signs of self-harm. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Republic of edward's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is neo-athiest.

Republic of edward is ranked 21,153rd in the world and 1,182nd in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 81.78 on the Human Development Index.
