The Crown Colony of East Plate is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Governor Lucas Higgins with a fair hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.32 billion Eastplatines hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal government prioritizes Healthcare, although Industry, Administration, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Montevideo City. The average income tax rate is 10.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Eastplatine economy, worth 363 trillion Eastplatine Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 68,363 Eastplatine Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All footpaths have tollbooths, there is a growing belief that mothers love their children more than fathers, parents are always up to speed on the latest childcare techniques, and the nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands. Crime is well under control. East Plate's national animal is the Southern Lapwing, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Anglicanism.

East Plate is ranked 49,538th in the world and 1st in The River Plate Basin for Most Income Equality, scoring 61.58 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
