The Republic of East Radona Standa is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 131 million East Standans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped East Radona Standan economy, worth 6.19 trillion lire a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 47,225 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Train stations can be 'armful places, the government is spending billions of lire on a fancy space probe to find a planet that may not even exist, bombs are permitted on planes for the 'security of the passengers', and inter-species marriages are ignored by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Radona Standa's national animal is the bison, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

East Radona Standa is ranked 16,477th in the world and 463rd in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 53.84 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
