The Republic of Edgedgie is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.803 billion Edgedgieans 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 enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Édgerie. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Edgedgiean economy, worth a remarkable 1,494 trillion Dgies a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 191,483 Dgies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students abandon classrooms for online education, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, replacement organs are grown in vats, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Edgedgie's national animal is the stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Edgedgie is ranked 242,607th in the world and 7,467th in the Rejected Realms for Most Primitive, scoring -595.84 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
