The Colony of Eastie is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Oliver with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, aversion to nipples, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.85 billion Eastieans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gulliver. The average income tax rate is 81.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Eastiean economy, worth a remarkable 1,474 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Furniture Restoration, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 166,639 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has unofficially betrayed its values, dictionary sales have hit an all-time high, the statue in the Mulcair Plaza has a solar panel for a hat, and loan operators are losing interest due to lost interest. Crime is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Eastie's national animal is the tigerfish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Christianity.

Eastie is ranked 34,553rd in the world and 958th in The East Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 81.86 Insults Per Minute.
