The Olive Green of Eist is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by E Dogg with a fair hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, smutty television, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 21.628 billion Eisterians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Under the Couch. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Eisterian economy, worth a remarkable 3,461 trillion livers 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 Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 160,039 livers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

E Dogg panders to nontraditional families, all industry is owned and run by the government, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and Max Barry is this year's Miss Eist. Crime is well under control. Eist's national animal is the goat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Eist is ranked 208,352nd in the world and 2,128th in 10000 Islands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -40.6 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
