The Christian Commune of East Nazareth is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its public floggings, soft-spoken computers, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.042 billion Nazarenes 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tiberias Autonomous Zone. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nazarene economy, worth 109 trillion pieces of silver a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 105,373 pieces of silver, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate, the nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs, the entire entry for East Nazareth in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', and shady doctors seem to have impeccable records. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. East Nazareth's national animal is the donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

East Nazareth is ranked 166,669th in the world and 186th in The Internationale for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -5.35 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
