The Council of East Asia and the Pacific Islands is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Council Manager Andrew Fang with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 2.295 billion Pacificans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nauru. The average income tax rate is 93.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient East Asia and the Pacific Islandsian economy, worth 378 trillion Candy Canes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 164,962 Candy Canes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Passengers often cause a stink on public transport, endangered bison are herded across the border to prevent them from trampling on native prairie grass, gambling is outlawed, and ambulances aren't allowed to overtake hearses. Crime is totally unknown. East Asia and the Pacific Islands's national animal is the humpback whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

East Asia and the Pacific Islands is ranked 199,390th in the world and 1,739th in 10000 Islands for Most Average, scoring 26.97 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
