The Commonwealth of East Isles is a very large, socially progressive nation, notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 151 million East Islesians 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 Administration. The average income tax rate is 73.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The East Islesian economy, worth 7.65 trillion East Isles farthings a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,638 East Isles farthings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, Leader's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, and pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Isles's national animal is the pygmy loris, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

East Isles is ranked 21,914th in the world and 996th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,147.29 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
