The Aegean Kingdom of The Oriental Empire is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Alexios d'Asselineau Palaiologos with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.961 billion Orientals are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nicaea. The average income tax rate is 81.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Oriental economy, worth 473 trillion Histamenons a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 159,929 Histamenons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

The nation thirsts for new freedoms, newspapers and TV broadcasters are given a list of 'acceptable words', school children asked "what is two times two?" are likely to form a symposium to discuss how different answers make them feel, and the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Oriental Empire's national animal is the Aquila, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Money is big bad.

The Oriental Empire is ranked 90,596th in the world and 706th in Europe for Best Weather, with 101 Meters Of Sunlight.
