The Empire of Edenlegaia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Saris Cross with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 16.79 billion Laethanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lis-Salith. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Laethanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,571 trillion Zennies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 153,181 Zennies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, with increasingly clear skies nobody seems to mind the electricity bill going through the roof, Saris Cross's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, and Laethanians refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Edenlegaia's national animal is the Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Edenlegaia is ranked 265,400th in the world and 12,472nd in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -348.04 on the Hayek Index.
