The Theocrat AIs of East Lodge is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Magna Beta with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working population of 3.153 billion East Lodgeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Center Lodge. The average income tax rate is 43.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient East Lodgean economy, worth 383 trillion Chips a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 121,726 Chips, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Cassocked priests and choirboys believe that what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors, amorous nobles always bring the same disappointing gift to weddings, lip-readers are often left perplexed by political rallies, and the government is hoping that medical aid will speak louder than human rights abuses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Lodge's national animal is the Space Lizard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Order of Cinder.

East Lodge is ranked 103,439th in the world and 3,514th in the South Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 47.33 on the Rand Index.
