The People's Republic of Fargandia del Este is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 555 million Easterns 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, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cistirna. The average income tax rate is 77.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Fargandia del Estean economy, worth 4.88 trillion Fargens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Soda Sales. Average income is 8,784 Fargens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Any reference to a higher being is punished with public shaming, woefully uninformed voters cast their ballots at random, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, and visions of giant pink Fenixes are a common side effect after Easterns eat their meals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fargandia del Este's national animal is the Fenix, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Fargandia del Este is ranked 197,419th in the world and 6,675th in The East Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -5.8 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
