The Grand Union of The Eastern Antarctic State is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Matthew Dawson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 10.193 billion Eastern 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, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Casey. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Eastern Antarctic economy, worth 882 trillion Antarctic Units a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 86,620 Antarctic Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The arms industry is strictly regulated, large sections of The Eastern Antarctic State have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there, Eastern Antarcticans refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns, and unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount Casey make great practice for foreign snipers. Crime is totally unknown. The Eastern Antarctic State's national animal is the Antarctican Kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Eastern Antarctic State is ranked 125,029th in the world and 11th in Australialia for Most Pro-Market, scoring 25.33 on the Rand Index.
