The Mystery of Edwin Frood 2 is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The devout population of 818 million Edwin Frood 2ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Edwin Frood 2ian economy, worth 27.7 trillion yafs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 33,845 yafs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, prisons are filled with the cackles and sobs of a deranged inmate population, legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, and modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Edwin Frood 2's national animal is the hound, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Edwin Frood 2 is ranked 199,807th in the world and 5th in The Javinian Union for Highest Average Incomes, with 33,845.95 Standard Monetary Units.
