The Republic of Edwardabear is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 191 million Edwardabearians 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 Healthcare, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 13.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Edwardabearian economy, worth 11.8 trillion warda dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,598 warda dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Increasing numbers of children in Edwardabear have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers, advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and soldiers must key in their passwords every time they want to reload their weapons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Edwardabear's national animal is the koala, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Edwardabear is ranked 71,775th in the world and 2,758th in the Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,803.36 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
