Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Imperial Commonwealth of Eastfield Lodge is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by King Iqbal II with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 19.542 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lodgertia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The powerhouse Eastfielder economy, worth a remarkable 5,497 trillion Fishfingers a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. Average income is an amazing 281,324 Fishfingers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains, door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', and the new national mascot has to be wheeled onto the field of play. 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 35,159th in the world and 33rd in Rushmore for Most Authoritarian, with 0.68 Stalins.
