The Jawbreaker Junta of Cul-Ed-Sac is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Ed the Toast Master with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.834 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Cul-Ed-Sackian economy, worth 433 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 152,892 quarters, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

Drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill, and only "purebloods" are allowed in the nicer parts of town. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major 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 16,965th in the world and 438th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 8,047.04 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
