The Armed Republic of East Sprint is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 4.551 billion West Sprintians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krala. The average income tax rate is 57.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient East Sprintian economy, worth 443 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 97,347 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, Air East Sprint tickets have reached sky-high prices due to a complete monopoly on air travel, the decommissioned tank divisions of other nations are being bought up en masse by East Sprint, and the banshee wail foretells skies of death. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. East Sprint's national animal is the Parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

East Sprint is ranked 31,644th in the world and 30th in European Union for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 16,214.44 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
