The Imperial Commonwealth of Eastfield Lodge is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Iqbal II with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 27.268 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 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 9,934 trillion Fishfingers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. Average income is an amazing 364,328 Fishfingers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Eastfield Lodge Blood Tithe, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, the police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers, and cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high. 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 232,548th in the world and 97th in Rushmore for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -69.74 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
