The Incorporated States of Edge Sans is a huge, pleasant nation, remarkable for its burgeoning dog population. The hard-working population of 478 million Edge Sansians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 16.9%.
The Edge Sansian economy, worth 22.6 trillion dogs a year, is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is 47,264 dogs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.
Organ donation is compulsory, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Edge Sans's national animal is the dog, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.
