The Imperial Commonwealth of Eastfield Lodge is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Iqbal II with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and digital currency. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 30.468 billion Eastfielders are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lodgertia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Eastfielder economy, worth an astonishing 11,474 trillion Fishfingers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 376,619 Fishfingers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The needs of the living outweigh the needs of the dead, arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, photographs that show ladies' ankles are considered risqué, and getting an autograph has become harder than ever. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eastfield Lodge's national animal is the digitalis-tailed lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Eastfield Lodge is ranked 258,457th in the world and 98th in Rushmore for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -64.36 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
