The Most Feared Union of Socialist Land Of East is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Red Star with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, enslaved workforce, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.984 billion Socialist Land Of Eastians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Panther City. The average income tax rate is 57.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Socialist Land Of Eastian economy, worth 370 trillion Red Rubles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 186,833 Red Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Cleaners are very careful not to bump into the big red button on Red Star's desk, rare steaks seem even bluer now, blasphemers and government critics often die in very unusual and unlikely accidents, and corporations have to consult a fifty-page "sanctions spreadsheet" to determine which countries they are allowed to do business with. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Socialist Land Of East's national animal is the Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Communist Meritocracy.

Socialist Land Of East is ranked 8,452nd in the world and 24th in The Black Hawks for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 8,180.41 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
