The Consecrated Kingdom of The Oriental Empire is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Athanasia II Augustina with an iron fist, and renowned for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.179 billion Orientălií 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Orientălií economy, worth a remarkable 1,968 trillion Pax Romanas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 176,065 Pax Romanas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All work and no play has rendered the nation's children somewhat intelligent but also remarkably dull, wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants, and the government considers it a sacred duty to video bikini-clad beach swimmers. 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 Caspian Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Oriental Empire is ranked 254,229th in the world and 1,147th in Europe for Nicest Citizens, with 0.62 average smiles per day.
