The Holy Dromedan Ascendancy of Ediola is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Nym Su-Do with a fair hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.165 billion Ediolans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bastion. The income tax rate is 100.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Ediolan economy, worth a remarkable 2,062 trillion Cors a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 225,024 Cors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes, the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, international humanitarian organisations are applauding the government for ending the death penalty, and international collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through Ediola. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ediola's national animal is the Excellian Wing, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Imperial Theory of Action.

Ediola is ranked 184,223rd in the world and 9,075th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -6.32 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
