The Greek Catholic Ecclesiarchy of East Blepia is a huge, genial nation, ruled by High Ecclesiarch Theodore of Vrsac with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, lack of airports, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 987 million East Blepians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of East Nídobhá. The average income tax rate is 87.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The East Blepian economy, worth 50.4 trillion lemons a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 51,080 lemons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There are no more heroes any more, citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, black market eau de toilette is made in bathroom labs across the nation, and etiquette guides advise visitors to 'grovel gracefully'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Blepia's national animal is the house cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

East Blepia is ranked 39,116th in the world and 217th in NationStates for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,303.1 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
