The Cheerful Democracy of Great Eddy is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord of the Turtles with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, devout population of 1.172 billion Eddish People are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Defense, Welfare, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Edigrad. The average income tax rate is 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Eddish economy, worth 117 trillion USSGE Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 100,286 USSGE Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

International collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through Great Eddy, diaper sales are up, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, and Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Eddy's national animal is the Eddish Social Sea Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Great Eddy is ranked 44,733rd in the world and 8th in Communist Cartel for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 4,426.44 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
