The Infection of Edgemaster is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Haruhi Suzumiya with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, infamous sell-swords, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 32.927 billion Burst Linkians 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 minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. 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 27,285 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 828,677 Gils, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,242,020 per year while the poor average 144,297, a ratio of 22.5 to 1.

The government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots, diplomats shake hands with their right and hide a poison dagger in their left, the backs of 'No Trespassing' signs were made for you and me, and ghost regiments exist only on paper. 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 30th in the world and 2nd in Capitalist Paradise for Highest Average Incomes, with 828,677.76 Standard Monetary Units.
