The Imperial Commonwealth of Eastfield Lodge is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Iqbal II with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 22.639 billion Eastfielders are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it 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 7,960 trillion Fishfingers a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 351,643 Fishfingers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Eastfield Lodge's border. 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 digital fly, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Eastfield Lodge is ranked 39th in the world and 1st in Rushmore for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 45,372.12 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
