The Edgy Puppet Name of Edge of Life is a massive, safe nation, notable for its zero percent divorce rate, infamous sell-swords, and frequent executions. The compassionate population of 3.693 billion Edge of Lifeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 41.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Edge of Lifean economy, worth 188 trillion guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,974 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Violetist community celebrates bombshells being dropped on Edge of Life, the government is reining in public spending, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, and weathermen are being arrested for attempting to read the future. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Edge of Life's national animal is the cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Edge of Life is ranked 149,715th in the world and 3,210th in Artificial Solar System for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 29,922 Standard Monetary Units.
