The People's Republic of Eastern Estonia and Latvia is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The cynical population of 187 million Balts are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 58.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Eastern Estonia and Latvian economy, worth 10.6 trillion baltic rubles a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 56,615 baltic rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, citizens are told that foreigners are hungry ghosts who eat the flesh of the overly curious, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, and money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eastern Estonia and Latvia's national animal is the wolf.

Eastern Estonia and Latvia is ranked 141,898th in the world and 6,736th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.24 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
