The Mysterious Community of Eastern Starbowie is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Avia with a fair hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, punitive income tax rates, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.385 billion Pokemon 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.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Raichu City. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Starbowense economy, worth 281 trillion Shock-hearts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Basket Weaving. Average income is 83,060 Shock-hearts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Left-wing militias train children how to properly burn down banks, serial killers who are released early distribute death but not their seed, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, and the government builds houses for foreign newcomers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eastern Starbowie's national animal is the Pokemon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Natural Violet.

Eastern Starbowie is ranked 57,029th in the world and 119th in Conch Kingdom for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,692.51 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
