The Sovereign Republic of East Skirsburg is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Northeastern Council with a fair hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, suspicion of poets, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.803 billion Eastern Skirsburgians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Svinsk. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient East Skirsburgian economy, worth 263 trillion Skirsburgian Kroner 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 146,310 Skirsburgian Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every worker receives exactly the same pay regardless of productivity, convicted criminals are given free limo rides to jail, cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, and the East Skirsburg Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Skirsburg's national animal is the Skirsburgian Mustang, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

East Skirsburg is ranked 82,589th in the world and 101st in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 1,610.14 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
