The Kingdom of Eastern Landings is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-working, democratic population of 126 million Eastern Landingsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 7.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Eastern Landingsian economy, worth 7.91 trillion Galleons a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 62,772 Galleons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal to make racist remarks in public, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, citizens must pay to enjoy Eastern Landings's pristine beaches, and cancer rates amongst the richest in society are inexplicably on the rise. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Eastern Landings's national animal is the Phoenix.

Eastern Landings is ranked 126,472nd in the world and 4,379th in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 7.91 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
