The Grinning Triumvirate of Cul-Ed-Sac is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Eds with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ban on automobiles, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.682 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 medium-sized, 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 50.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Cul-Ed-Sackian economy, worth 629 trillion quarters a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 171,005 quarters, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, incompetent former soldiers have been re-employed as incompetent cleaners and kitchen staff, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, and human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate. 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 69,196th in the world and 2,934th in The East Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,914.64 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
