The Alley Cat of The Oriental Empire is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Athanasia II Augustina with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 4.925 billion Orientals have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople. The average income tax rate is 92.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Oriental economy, worth 803 trillion Pax Romanas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 163,168 Pax Romanas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, people make a career out of medical voyeurism, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Oriental Empire's national animal is the Canis lupus, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodoxy.

The Oriental Empire is ranked 74,914th in the world and 374th in Europe for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,268.61 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
