The Kingdom of Edemland is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Ann Oats with an iron fist, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 865 million Edemlandians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neuberg. The average income tax rate is 85.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Edemlandian economy, worth 79.8 trillion Златыs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 92,295 Златыs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Builders across Edemland are blocked up with orders for new public loos, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, government popup ads are springing up like weeds, and quiet professionalism has returned to the nation's armed forces. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Edemland's national animal is the Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Edemland is ranked 17,246th in the world and 352nd in the Rejected Realms for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 6,016.53 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
