The Imperial Commonwealth of Eastfield Lodge is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Iqbal II with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 26.52 billion Eastfielders are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lodgertia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Eastfielder economy, worth a remarkable 9,645 trillion Fishfingers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 363,692 Fishfingers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All beauty contests have been banned, pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant, and it takes at least three to tango. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eastfield Lodge's national animal is the digitalis-tailed lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Eastfield Lodge is ranked 218,808th in the world and 93rd in Rushmore for Rudest Citizens, with 3.97 Insults Per Minute.
