The Imperial Commonwealth of Eastfield Lodge is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by King Iqbal II with an even hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, ban on automobiles, and lack of airports. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 26.114 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 9,497 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 363,694 Fishfingers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bins outnumber trees in city parks, a surprising number of police officers have been arrested for digitalis-tailed lion sacrifices, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and bemused schoolkids colour in their favourite quadratic equations with crayons. 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 208,029th in the world and 114th in Rushmore for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -46.43 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
