The Publication of Eastern Pacific News Service is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Minister of Information Tretrid with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, cynical population of 3.091 billion marsupials 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Christie Island. The average income tax rate is 30.5%.

The strong East Pacifican economy, worth 174 trillion caeks a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 56,320 caeks, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Nations that kill a marsupial can expect a strongly worded letter, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, conspiracy theorists allege that the government is spying on them through their carbon monoxide detectors, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eastern Pacific News Service's national animal is the parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Ademarism.

Eastern Pacific News Service is ranked 102,973rd in the world and 5,121st in The East Pacific for Safest, scoring 73.09 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
