The Commonwealth of East Stederland is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Your mom with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, parental licensing program, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 1.686 billion East Stederlandians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Steder City. The average income tax rate is 83.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse East Stederlandian economy, worth 126 trillion acorns a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 74,889 acorns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead", all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, mathematicians are hated by children across the country, and they say that East Stederlandians made a dessert and called it peace. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Stederland's national animal is the tree, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

East Stederland is ranked 97,123rd in the world and 326th in Forest for Highest Economic Output, with 126 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
