OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Imperial Commonwealth of Eastfield Lodge is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by King Iqbal II with an even hand, and notable for its restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, intelligent population of 13.749 billion Eastfield Lodgeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although Education and Religion & Spirituality are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lodgertia. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Eastfield Lodge's airwaves are dominated by corporate-backed commercial radio, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eastfield Lodge's national animal is the digital fly, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Islam, and its currency is the fishfinger.

Eastfield Lodge is ranked 4th in Rushmore and 3,193rd in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 286 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
