The Infection of Edgemaster is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Haruhi Suzumiya with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, otherworldly petting zoo, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 34.04 billion Burst Linkians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seireitei. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Burst Linkian economy, worth an astonishing 28,052 trillion Gils a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 824,093 Gils, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Allergy-sufferers must wear gas masks before venturing outdoors, phenotypic plasticity is a struggle for sealife in polluted waters, the new one Gil coin also makes a handy throwing-star, and children who believe in the tooth fairy are frequently shipped off to Bigtopia. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Edgemaster's national animal is the Hollow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Haruhiism.

Edgemaster is ranked 232,417th in the world and 305th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1.7 Tourists Per Hour.
