The Lucky Holy Purple Ecclesiarc of East Blepia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by High Ecclesiarch Saint Paisios of Athos with a fair hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.157 billion East Blepians 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 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong East Blepian economy, worth 74.8 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 Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 64,617 lemons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, "What's the Frequency, High Ecclesiarch Saint Paisios of Athos?" is a favorite phrase of backyard radio broadcasters when interrupting official diplomatic channels, and the nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances. 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 cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Southern Rite Catholicism.

East Blepia is ranked 200,023rd in the world and 377th in NationStates for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -8.37 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
