The Union of Socialist States of East Antarctica is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Lucy Valverde with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, rampant corporate plagiarism, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.569 billion East Antarcticans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Victoria. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient East Antarctican economy, worth a remarkable 1,646 trillion Antarctic rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 217,498 Antarctic rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Lucy Valverde's bedroom, and students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist States of East Antarctica's national animal is the Weddell seal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Socialist States of East Antarctica is ranked 116,800th in the world and 902nd in 10000 Islands for Highest Drug Use, scoring 36.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
