The Incandescent Kingdom of Edwerlantin is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sekien Suzuki with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.503 billion Edwerlants are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vallvend. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Edwerlanti economy, worth a remarkable 2,113 trillion Graves a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 281,666 Graves, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

People who make the leader's blood boil get boiled, jaywalking is punishable by public flogging, there's a bright dawn ahead for Edwerlantin, and 90% of active duty EAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Edwerlantin's national animal is the Red-Tailed Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Edwerlantin is ranked 6,598th in the world and 318th in The North Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 101.9 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
