nevertheless , the one answer my question must surely know the exact meaning of the sentence above

“in a small county 【NOT country, lolipop】 east of here” is just a phrase, not a sentence.  

真的,是一个非常简单的片语——在这里东面、在这里以东的一个小县,就这样而已。

"in a small county east of here" = in a small county (you should know this meaning, otherwise you don't  even have the qualification to come out this question)

"east of here"  is a complement  that defines the "county" which is located in east part of the place where the writer is writing.

eg: The epicenter is in Wenchuan, a small county, 200km west of Chengdu
