The Golden Kingdom of The Oriental Empire is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Athanasia II Augustina with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 5.516 billion Orientals enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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 93.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Oriental economy, worth 895 trillion Pax Romanas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 162,368 Pax Romanas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Murderers facing life in prison listen to long sermons on positive thinking, The Oriental Empire has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, garishly-decorated government buildings are being hailed as the height of 'religious nouveau', and thieves find battery shops juicier targets than banks. 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 10,441st in the world and 116th in Europe for Rudest Citizens, with 111.4 Insults Per Minute.
