The Constitutional Monarchy of East Lankia is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 402 million Lanks enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Law & Order, and Public Transport are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Toron. The average income tax rate is 12.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lankan economy, worth 38.1 trillion Leones a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Average income is 94,760 Leones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, children who can't memorize their multiplication tables are sent to the mines, government opponents tend to have their patents rejected immediately, and pharmaceutical companies emphatically promise that "your pills are in the mail" rather than admit any supply shortfall. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Lankia's national animal is the Lankan Trout, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

East Lankia is ranked 43,948th in the world and 103rd in The Western Isles for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 4,132.68 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
