The Armed Republic Regime of Easternryke is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by His Highness with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, avant-garde cinema, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.853 billion Savages 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alpha. The average income tax rate is 82.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient savage economy, worth a remarkable 2,701 trillion gold coins a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 343,984 gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Copyright laws have been abolished, postcards from savage driving test centres are popular souvenirs, children aren't allowed to chew their pencils until they get home from school, and god-fearing citizens can be seen in prayer circles around the Big Max impact crater. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Easternryke's national animal is the python, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholosism.

Easternryke is ranked 4,924th in the world and 303rd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 93.75 on the Human Development Index.
