The Imperial Commonwealth of Eastfield Lodge is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Iqbal II with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, lack of airports, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 26.304 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 a remarkable 9,575 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 highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 364,014 Fishfingers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, government-funded marriage counseling is showing very limited success, the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, and rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements. 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 207,762nd in the world and 111th in Rushmore for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -62.75 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
