The Supreme State of United Edwards is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Leader Kenneth with an iron fist, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.736 billion United Edwardsians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Rogers. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 58.6%.

The frighteningly efficient United Edwardsian economy, worth 471 trillion Edwerts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 172,244 Edwerts, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Toddler groups haven taken over local libraries, urban entrepreneurs are busy introducing cockroaches into restaurant kitchens, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, and the United Edwards Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Edwards's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

United Edwards is ranked 164,002nd in the world and 6,156th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 49.35 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
