The Colony of Eastie is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Oliver with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.262 billion Eastieans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

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 83.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Eastiean economy, worth a remarkable 1,920 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 187,178 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles, shell-shocked refugees are made to provide Immigration with lively renditions of 'Dancing Queen', and foreign observers are baffled by the sway Oliver's student intern holds over macroeconomics. Crime is moderate, 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 8,780th in the world and 146th in The East Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 1,920 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
