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, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 30.258 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 an astonishing 11,357 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 375,359 Fishfingers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Lodgertia, and landless farmers wander forlornly in the government's many national parks. 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 175,607th in the world and 62nd in Rushmore for Most Extreme, scoring 14.65 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
