The People's Republic of Edington is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Quebecho with an even hand, and remarkable for its burgeoning Peacock population. The hard-working, democratic population of 2.283 billion Edingtonians 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 Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Capricona. The average income tax rate is 29.4%.

The Edingtonian economy, worth 143 trillion Dinars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 62,792 Dinars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The sick and dying are locked in their homes with a red "X" painted on the front door, Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case, prison walls have had to be modified to keep parkour-trained criminals from escaping, and inter-species marriages are ignored by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Edington's national animal is the Peacock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Edington is ranked 46,637th in the world and 21st in Union of Democrats for Highest Poor Incomes, with 34,363.83 Standard Monetary Units.
