The Christmas Ecclesiarchy of East Blepia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Santa Claus with a fair hand, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, lack of airports, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.189 billion East Blepias love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of East Nídobhá. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient East Blepian economy, worth 234 trillion lemons a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 107,217 lemons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

National stress about the waning heir-line is causing a rise in alopecia, the government is lax about national security during the Christmas period (East Blepia has found 7 easter eggs), orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children, and suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Blepia's national animal is the Santa, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christmas Orthodoxy.

East Blepia is ranked 4,553rd in the world and 29th in NationStates for Most Pacifist, with 153.63 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
