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 museums and concert halls, national health service, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 19.014 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 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 enormous but sluggish Eastfielder economy, worth a remarkable 2,127 trillion Fishfingers a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. Average income is an impressive 111,876 Fishfingers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

EL-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, and the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists. 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 180,155th in the world and 134th in Rushmore for Most Avoided, scoring 0.13 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
