The People's Republic of East Ustya is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Chairman Maxim Warner with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.369 billion East Ustyans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 74.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient East Ustyan economy, worth 54.7 trillion Nashes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales and Information Technology. Average income is 39,929 Nashes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sex changes are routinely performed at East Ustya's hospitals, school uniforms are compulsory, there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, and soldiers' positions are given away by the glint of their bayonets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Ustya's national animal is the Honey Badger Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

East Ustya is ranked 86,816th in the world and 542nd in The Communist Bloc for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 68.88 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
