The Military Republic of Edington is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Captain Elsandro with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.954 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 Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Capricona. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.5%.

The strong Edingtonian economy, worth 259 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 65,553 Dinars, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Victims of limb-mauling industrial accidents are told to keep working with their remaining hand, the tribal zone has been opened to up to 'economic interest' groups, fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal, and violent criminals are doomed to be hunted by a psychotic billionaire. 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 100,611th in the world and 19th in Union of Democrats for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 906.73 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
