The Armed Republic Regime of Easternryke is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by His Highness with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, prohibition of alcohol, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.813 billion Savages are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alpha. The average income tax rate is 82.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient savage economy, worth a remarkable 2,679 trillion gold coins a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 343,003 gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Doughnut-makers claim their products are healthy because they are fortified with vitamins, the Treasury Minister takes anxiety medication every time kids lose their sports kits, bicyclists are banned from major roads, and seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Easternryke's national animal is the python, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholosism.

Easternryke is ranked 106,334th in the world and 5,434th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 1,173.3 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
