The Colony of Edmundian Pluto is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Governor Atwell with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 2.15 billion Edmundian Plutonians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Edward. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Edmundian Plutonian economy, worth 340 trillion Great Edmundian Royals a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 158,563 Great Edmundian Royals, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 471,463 per year while the poor average 41,810, a ratio of 11.3 to 1.

Emojis are the soul of wit, nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, the right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification, and weapons are only sold to foreign governments that are legitimate enough to not bounce the cheque. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 51,452nd in the world and 17th in The Interdimensional Community for Most Pro-Market, scoring 56 on the Rand Index.
