The Mystery of Edwin Frood 2 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The devout population of 1.334 billion 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 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Edwin Frood 2ian economy, worth 45.3 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 33,965 yafs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Returning tourists and businessmen are detained without trial if they belong to the "wrong" religion, all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, ambulances aren't allowed to overtake hearses, and strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices. 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.
