The Imperial Commonwealth of Eastfield Lodge is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by King Iqbal II with an even hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 23.407 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 8,059 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 extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 344,321 Fishfingers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government pours millions of Fishfingers into rehabilitation programs annually, most Eastfielders would sell their own grandmother, national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys', and the nation continues to depend on foreigners for food. 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 14th in the world and 1st in Rushmore for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 30,739.52 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
