According to this (at least when it comes to citations and ratings), the most influential philosophers are continental/analytical and are active in either US or Britain.

Are there any important Eastern and Central European philosophers working, teaching and writing today (except Zizek, of course)? Are there any openly available and updated resources on this issue?

Certainly, there are more philosophers working teaching writing and getting published today than ever. What we don't have is the cult of personality, the famous name arising from the vacuum of a small number of philosophers for decades or centuries at a time.

It's not limited to only living philosophers, but check out the "Lists of philosophers by language, nationality, religion, or region"
