The Infection of Edgemaster is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Haruhi Suzumiya with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, complete lack of public education, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 32.076 billion Burst Linkians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seireitei. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Burst Linkian economy, worth an astonishing 26,387 trillion Gils a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 822,654 Gils, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,404,262 per year while the poor average 130,515, a ratio of 26.1 to 1.

All work and no play makes parties very dull, you can bet your bottom dollar that gambling will cost you an arm and a leg, the breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Edgemaster, and political detractors refer to Haruhi Suzumiya as 'that Bigtopian puppet'. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Edgemaster's national animal is the Hollow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Haruhiism.

Edgemaster is ranked 9,448th in the world and 42nd in Capitalist Paradise for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 15.94 Bank.
