The Protectorate of East Maconian is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jacob Yelno with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, devout population of 7.026 billion East Maconianians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Macaronia. The average income tax rate is 38.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming East Maconianian economy, worth 651 trillion Bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 92,672 Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

A blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction, the optimally efficient parking strategy for business commuters is referred to as the "traveling salesman problem", it is now illegal for teens to view any sites except Club Kitten and My Little Donkey, and school lunches are made with hypo-allergenic wood pulp. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Maconian's national animal is the Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestant Christianity.

East Maconian is ranked 98,259th in the world and 8th in Of Books and Stories for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 0.21 Bank.
