The Infection of Edgemaster is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Haruhi Suzumiya with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 36.959 billion Burst Linkians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seireitei. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Burst Linkian economy, worth an astonishing 30,169 trillion Gils a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 816,308 Gils, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,505,147 per year while the poor average 44,944, a ratio of 122 to 1.

Pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, visitors often mistake the toiletplex at music festivals for the main stage, nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids, and for the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Edgemaster's national animal is the Hollow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Haruhiism.

Edgemaster is ranked 5,881st in the world and 29th in Capitalist Paradise for Smartest Citizens, with 118.98 quips per hour.
