The Armed Republic Regime of Easternryke is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by His Highness with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, digital currency, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.917 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 relatively small, 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.9%.

The frighteningly efficient savage economy, worth a remarkable 1,670 trillion gold coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 282,315 gold coins, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, priceless Maxtopian artwork can often be found in executive bathrooms, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Catholosism.

Easternryke is ranked 134,353rd in the world and 6,581st in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -76.78 on the Hayek Index.
