The Golden Kingdom of The Oriental Empire is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Athanasia II Augustina with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 5.15 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 92.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Oriental economy, worth 854 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 common. Average income is an impressive 165,862 Pax Romanas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Superfoods are often seen as supervillains, manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past. 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 9,041st in the world and 173rd in Europe for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,725.13 Tourists Per Hour.
