The Mysterious Community of Eastern Starbowie is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Avia with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.372 billion Pokemon 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Raichu City. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Starbowense economy, worth 275 trillion Shock-hearts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Basket Weaving. Average income is 81,669 Shock-hearts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, Raichu City is a police state during international summits, and rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eastern Starbowie's national animal is the Pokemon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Natural Violet.

Eastern Starbowie is ranked 215,446th in the world and 405th in Conch Kingdom for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.39 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
