The Republic of Edith is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its digital currency, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 341 million Edithans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 53.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Edithan economy, worth 12.2 trillion dollars 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 led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 35,643 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-dollar mansions, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Edith's national animal is the butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
