The Theocracy of East Taco is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Crusher Creel with an iron fist, and notable for its triple-decker prams, fear of technology, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.975 billion East Tacoans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Queso Fresco. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.8%.

The all-consuming East Tacoan economy, worth 222 trillion guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 112,852 guilders, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 452,424 per year while the poor average 18,878, a ratio of 24.0 to 1.

Crusher Creel often plays real life games of Tower Defense against hordes of angry villagers, bicyclists are banned from major roads, the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, and in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Taco's national animal is the East Tacoan Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The True Faith.

East Taco is ranked 159,947th in the world and 8,753rd in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 41.35 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
