The Most Feared Union of Socialist Land Of East is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.297 billion Socialist Land Of Eastians 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 prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Panther City. The average income tax rate is 59.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Socialist Land Of Eastian economy, worth 435 trillion Red Rubles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 189,793 Red Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

News editors who eschew the state-approved superlatives for describing Leader tend to disappear, litter collection has replaced fast food as the most popular after-school job, sections of the police receive paramilitary training, and kids are gathering at the local soda shop to celebrate staying out past sundown. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist Land Of East's national animal is the Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Communist Meritocracy.

Socialist Land Of East is ranked 21,691st in the world and 33rd in The Black Hawks for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,958.74 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
