The Empire of Edenlegaia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Saris Cross with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, complete lack of prisons, and aversion to nipples. The compassionate population of 10.823 billion Laethanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lis-Salith. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Laethanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,624 trillion Zennies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 150,072 Zennies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Justice is blinding, foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, and a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Edenlegaia's national animal is the Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Edenlegaia is ranked 5,820th in the world and 193rd in the South Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.42 Years.
