The Socialist Empire of East Deslang is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Friedrich I with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.032 billion East Deslangians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Engels D-IX. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 87.9%.

The frighteningly efficient East Deslangian economy, worth 232 trillion ED-Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 225,591 ED-Marks, with the richest citizens earning 8.2 times as much as the poorest.

Asking 'a penny for your thoughts?' draws law enforcement response, theatre may or may not be changing for the better but it is being changed for good, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, and you don't need a smoking gun to arrest someone for promoting guns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Deslang's national animal is the Black Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Divine Imperial Cult.

East Deslang is ranked 40,934th in the world and 1,255th in The East Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 706.31 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
