The Commonwealth of East Stederland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Your mom with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.523 billion East Stederlandians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Steder City. The average income tax rate is 82.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse East Stederlandian economy, worth 111 trillion acorns a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 73,340 acorns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, a performance of the hit musical "Mamma Tua" has been delayed after squatters were found sleeping in the orchestra pit, most people suffer from some form of hearing loss, and t-shirts displaying a photo of Your mom performing the Full-Monty are selling out. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Stederland's national animal is the tree, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

East Stederland is ranked 103,218th in the world and 351st in Forest for Highest Economic Output, with 111 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
