The Jawbreaker Junta of Cul-Ed-Sac is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Ed the Toast Master with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.091 billion Cullies 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Peach Creek. The average income tax rate is 30.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Cul-Ed-Sackian economy, worth 310 trillion quarters a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 148,271 quarters, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government is cracking down on subversive groups, cheating spouses are required to undergo job training, nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, and folk singers have replaced personal injury lawyers in being ridiculed as "ambulance chasers". Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem. Cul-Ed-Sac's national animal is the monster chicken, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cult De Sac.

Cul-Ed-Sac is ranked 11,460th in the world and 280th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 9,999.18 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
