The Holy Empire of Edmulus is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Edmund with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, disturbing lack of elderly people, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.342 billion Edmulusians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Edmulustown. The average income tax rate is 89.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Edmulusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,578 trillion francs a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 215,045 francs, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, children have only the most basic of education, the nation has always been at war with Moltovea, and trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Edmulus's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Edmusian.

Edmulus is ranked 102,518th in the world and 17th in The Empire of Tamriel for Most Extreme, scoring 18.07 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
