The Supreme State of United Edwards is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader Kenneth with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.631 billion United Edwardsians 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, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Rogers. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 63.8%.

The frighteningly efficient United Edwardsian economy, worth 634 trillion Edwerts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 174,754 Edwerts, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government denies that it has an agency overseeing plausible deniability of black-ops agencies, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, landless farmers wander forlornly in the government's many national parks, and the once prosperous capital is in utter decline. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Edwards's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

United Edwards is ranked 11,940th in the world and 292nd in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 9,758.46 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
