The Olive Green of Eist is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by E Dogg with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.241 billion Eisterians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Under the Couch. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Eisterian economy, worth a remarkable 1,707 trillion livers a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 151,913 livers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low, crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, and sex changes are routinely performed at Eist's hospitals. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Eist's national animal is the goat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
Eist is ranked 141st in Renegade Islands Alliance and 113,240th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 12 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
