The Federal Republic of United States of Edwards is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Timothy Edwards with a fair hand, and remarkable for its lack of airports, prohibition of alcohol, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.497 billion Edwardsians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of District of Edwards. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Edwardsian economy, worth a remarkable 4,091 trillion Work Seconds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 282,207 Work Seconds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Maxtopian villagers starve by the time Edwardsian officials even file the appropriate paperwork needed to help them, survivors receive aid from only the most environmentally-friendly transport, children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants, and the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United States of Edwards's national animal is the Mansuetum Domus Cattus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

United States of Edwards is ranked 250,372nd in the world and 4th in United Federation Of Edwards for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 14.69 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
