The Holy Dromedan Ascendancy of Ediola is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Nym Su-Do with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.591 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bastion. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ediolan economy, worth a remarkable 1,671 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 Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 220,161 Cors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vanity is the constant enemy of dignity, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, passengers often cause a stink on public transport, and evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right. 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 161,231st in the world and 8,333rd in The North Pacific for Most Devout, with 2.91 Prayers Per Hour.
