The Lucky Orthodox Ecclesiarchy of East Blepia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by High Ecclesiarch Saint Charbel Makhlouf with a fair hand, and renowned for its fear of technology, prohibition of alcohol, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.451 billion East Blepians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of East Nídobhá. The average income tax rate is 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse East Blepian economy, worth 135 trillion lemons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving and Book Publishing. Average income is 93,712 lemons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, High Ecclesiarch Saint Charbel Makhlouf is frequently seen begging critics to stop insulting the government, and politicians who misplace decimal points on expense reports are fired for gross incompetence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Blepia's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Celtic Orthodoxy.

East Blepia is ranked 18,064th in the world and 184th in NationStates for Highest Poor Incomes, with 77,602.02 Standard Monetary Units.
