The AI Peoples of EAst LOdGE is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Just Aura with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed population of 879 million EAst LOdGEians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of West Colony. The average income tax rate is 25.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse EAst LOdGEian economy, worth 95.6 trillion Diamond Zalrecs 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 slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. 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 108,729 Diamond Zalrecs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The election for Just Aura's office's janitor is heating up, mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, and many parents are becoming frustrated with their children's choices in spouses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. EAst LOdGE's national animal is the Space Lizard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

EAst LOdGE is ranked 147,047th in the world and 6,607th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 25.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
