The Colony of Edmundian Pluto is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Governor Atwell with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, sprawling nuclear power plants, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 7.54 billion Edmundian Plutonians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Edward. The average income tax rate is 84.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Edmundian Plutonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,466 trillion Great Edmundian Royals a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 194,483 Great Edmundian Royals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, the government is seen to favor traditionalist religions, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, and the government snoops on private internet connections. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Edmundian Pluto's national animal is the Asian Small-Clawed Otter, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Church of Edmundia.

Edmundian Pluto is ranked 239,340th in the world and 78th in The Interdimensional Community for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -6.32 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
