Regional Influence: Squire

Location: the Rejected Realms



Population7.96 billion



The Republic of Edgedgie is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, unlimited-speed roads, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.96 billion Edgedgieans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Édgerie. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Edgedgiean economy, worth a remarkable 1,528 trillion Dgies a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 191,988 Dgies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Posters on 'Edgedgiean Values' advise against being proud of Edgedgie, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, and 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Edgedgiean Space Agency. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Edgedgie's national animal is the stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Edgedgie is ranked 183,437th in the world and 6,050th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -3.55 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
