The Universal Republic of Edgelandia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Ned Edgewalker with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, infamous sell-swords, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 15.03 billion Edgelandians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Environment also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Westbrook. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Edgelandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,370 trillion Edgebucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 157,729 Edgebucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Worrywarts have started advocating for a paint ban, professionals are ready to retire by the time they receive permission to use their credentials, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and anti-environmentalist dissidents must beware of government plants in their midst. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Edgelandia's national animal is the Grey Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Edgelandia is ranked 236,073rd in the world and 5th in The Meme Must Go On for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -11.65 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
