The Colony of Edmundian Pluto is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Governor Atwell with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, flagrant waste-dumping, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 2.294 billion Edmundian Plutonians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Edward. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Edmundian Plutonian economy, worth 365 trillion Great Edmundian Royals a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 159,514 Great Edmundian Royals, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 472,191 per year while the poor average 42,325, a ratio of 11.2 to 1.

Political gridlock ensues as even the most innocuous legislation is vetoed by the Supreme Court for potential civil rights violations, foreign planes and migratory birds are shot down as spies, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Edmundian Pluto's national animal is the Asian Small-Clawed Otter, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Church of Edmundia.

Edmundian Pluto is ranked 10,733rd in the world and 5th in The Interdimensional Community for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
