The Supreme State of United Edwards is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Leader Kenneth with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, digital currency, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 5.217 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 67.7%.

The frighteningly efficient United Edwardsian economy, worth 914 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 175,379 Edwerts, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

Big Brother is still watching even when your big brother is dead, interest in globalism never flags, older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road, and United Edwardsian husbands are dead good at fathering kids. 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 114,629th in the world and 4,795th in The East Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 958.19 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
