East Lodge

Population669 million

CapitalNorthern Colony


The Revived Android of East Lodge is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, infamous sell-swords, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 669 million East Lodgeans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Northern Colony. The average income tax rate is 41.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming East Lodgean economy, worth 77.2 trillion Zalrecs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 115,378 Zalrecs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

One of the most popular models in East Lodge has a scarred face and one working eye, police wait behind troop deployments in order to shoot deserters, school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, and nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Lodge's national animal is the Amtarayar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

East Lodge is ranked 49,045th in the world and 27th in Abydos for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 169,148.77 Standard Monetary Units.
