The East Pacific

Population19.925 billion

LeaderLady East


The Original Version of The East Pacific is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lady East with an even hand, and notable for its burgeoning eagle population. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 19.925 billion East Pacificians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The medium-sized, liberal, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eastana. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.8%.

The powerhouse East Pacifician economy, worth a remarkable 1,171 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is 58,794 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 199,660 per year while the poor average 12,772, a ratio of 15.6 to 1.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, Atheism has been named as The East Pacific's national religion, The East Pacific has designated Eastana as its capital city, and Lady East has just been declared ruler of The East Pacific in an international press conference. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The East Pacific's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

The East Pacific is ranked 42,087th in the world and 1,064th in The East Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 15.63 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
