The Federation of Union of the Oriental States is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed population of 493 million Orientals are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.
The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hanul. The average income tax rate is 53.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Oriental economy, worth 48.8 trillion Hwans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is 98,948 Hwans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Union of the Oriental States's national animal is the Humpback whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
