Location: Osiris

Regional Influence: Nipper


The Grand Kingdom of Ederiron is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.955 billion Ederironians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Holden. The average income tax rate is 75.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ederironian economy, worth 436 trillion Creds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 110,265 Creds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter, libraries have replaced overdue book fines with mandatory mental health assessments, kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, and Chekhov's guns are killing the entertainment budget. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ederiron's national animal is the Nykur, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Privatism.

Ederiron is ranked 2,585th in the world and 116th in Osiris for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 8,674.57 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
