The Armed Republic of The Eastern Pacific Islands is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 577 million Eastern Pacific Islanders are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Belle. The average income tax rate is 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Eastern Pacific Islandian economy, worth 81.5 trillion Government Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 141,260 Government Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is common to still see adults with training wheels on their bikes, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, and teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Eastern Pacific Islands's national animal is the Duck, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Eastern Pacific Islands is ranked 28,647th in the world and 1st in The Southeast Islands for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 70.27 Effective Tax Rate.
