The country has a population of more than 1 million minifigs. While most of them are of Lego origins, a large minority identified themselves as Malatians, and longed to be united with Malatia. Many of them are residing near to the border with Malatia.
King William II has been ruling Equanter for the past 20 years. He is assisted by the Prime Minister, Prince Harold who leads the Royalist Party. There is no opposition group officially. However the Malatians in the Eastern Province has set up the Inglorious State In Lego (ISIL) to fight for unification with Malatia.
As the economy grew and the income gap has widen between the majority Legos and minority Malatians, tension grew along the border in the Eastern Province.
