The Democratic Republic of Edlan is a very large, socially progressive nation, notable for its compulsory military service, unlimited-speed roads, and suspicion of poets. The democratic population of 167 million Eddites enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Public Transport. The average income tax rate is 17.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Edlanian economy, worth 9.03 trillion EdCreds a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 54,094 EdCreds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, Max Barry is this year's Miss Edlan, and throwing garbage out of your house's front window makes it legally someone else's problem. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Edlan's national animal is the Big One, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Edlan is ranked 121,550th in the world and 1,683rd in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 59.58 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
