East Central

Population8 million


The Democratic Republic of East Central is a tiny, genial nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The democratic population of 8 million East centralions are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 14.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The developing East Centralian economy, worth 283 billion Wintreaths a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 35,425 Wintreaths, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Great East Centralian Melting Pot boils out ethnic heritage, pharmacists increasingly claim they are morally obligated to take long lunches, cars are banned, and homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them. Crime is totally unknown. East Central's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

East Central is ranked 155,581st in the world and 129th in Wintreath for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 30.14 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
