The Imperial Commonwealth of Eastfield Lodge is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Iqbal II with an even hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, strictly enforced bedtime, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 28.81 billion Eastfielders are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lodgertia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Eastfielder economy, worth an astonishing 10,646 trillion Fishfingers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 369,540 Fishfingers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers, the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, only adults may purchase violent video games, and students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eastfield Lodge's national animal is the digitalis-tailed lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Eastfield Lodge is ranked 149,875th in the world and 38th in Rushmore for Most Conservative, scoring 47.23 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
