The Grinning Triumvirate of Cul-Ed-Sac is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Eds with an iron fist, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.163 billion Cullies 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 Administration, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Peach Creek. The average income tax rate is 49.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Cul-Ed-Sackian economy, worth 730 trillion quarters a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 175,579 quarters, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

The hills are alive with the sound of ringtones, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, movie references are legally admissible in court, and teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate. Cul-Ed-Sac's national animal is the monster chicken, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cult De Sac.

Cul-Ed-Sac is ranked 59,831st in the world and 2,209th in The East Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 3,306.75 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
