The Kingdom of St Edmund is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Harold and the Witan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 30.772 billion St Edmundans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saintedmundsport. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.2%.

The all-consuming St Edmundan economy, worth a remarkable 4,240 trillion marks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 137,798 marks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 931,183 per year while the poor average 7,541, a ratio of 123 to 1.

St Edmund has designated Saintedmundsport as its capital city, King Harold and the Witan has just been declared ruler of St Edmund in an international press conference, Christianity has been named as St Edmund's national religion, and Dolphin is one of the most popular forenames in St Edmund. Crime is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. St Edmund's national animal is the dolphin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Christianity.

St Edmund is ranked 154,563rd in the world and 7th in Conservative Paradise for Most Cultured, scoring 61 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
