The Armed Republic Regime of Easternryke is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by His Highness with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, digital currency, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.782 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 relatively small, 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 lungsod ng sinumpa. The average income tax rate is 36.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient savage economy, worth 657 trillion gold coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 236,507 gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

On-duty Air Easternryke flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, the government's fruit business reeks of rotting produce and corruption, foreign leaders who don't applaud His Highness's speeches are regarded as enemies of Easternryke, and anyone who so much as frowns risks being referred to a mental health unit. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholosism.

Easternryke is ranked 25,373rd in the world and 1,229th in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 81 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
