The Kingdom of Republic of edward is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by king edward 1st with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 22.08 billion Republic of edwardians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of carpathia. The average income tax rate is 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Republic of edwardian economy, worth a remarkable 2,033 trillion dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 92,106 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Divorcees attending custody disputes tend to wear black-and-white zigzag patterns, burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms, organ donation is compulsory, and toddler groups have taken over local libraries. 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 136,825th in the world and 4,620th in Lazarus for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 108,739 Standard Monetary Units.
