The Imperial Commonwealth of Eastfield Lodge is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by King Iqbal II with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate population of 13.151 billion Eastfield Lodgeans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

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.

The people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, airport security is provided by private companies, and the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas. 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 7th in Rushmore and 12,171st in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 1.864 Stalins.
