The Federal Socialist Republic of East Shancia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by General Secratary Jörg Bauer with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate population of 1.289 billion Shancians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kinengrad NCR. The average income tax rate is 85.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shancian economy, worth 162 trillion Stratnes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 125,907 Stratnes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gift hampers filled with delicious beef jerky are sent to newly communist nations, cane fights are a common sight in nursing homes, General Secratary Jörg Bauer is considering changing the Shancian flag to one with more glitter, and residents of houses built on a foundation of wishful thinking are prone to an odd sinking feeling. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Shancia's national animal is the Polar Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Marxism-Leninism.

East Shancia is ranked 11,523rd in the world and 263rd in The Communist Bloc for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 10,029.76 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
