The Holy Empire of Pratus Oriens is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and ban on automobiles. The cynical, devout population of 747 million Pratus Oriensians 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 large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 63.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Pratus Oriensian economy, worth 32.3 trillion Golds a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 43,273 Golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, patriots insist that size does matter, black market eau de toilette is made in bathroom labs across the nation, and the Gallery of Amusing Cat Photographs is the most popular museum in the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pratus Oriens's national animal is the Sheep, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Pratus Oriens is ranked 24,967th in the world and 3rd in The EverLit Torch for Most Influential, scoring 987 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
