The Anatolian Kingdom of The Oriental Empire is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Athanasia Augustina with an even hand, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, pith helmet sales, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, devout population of 4.542 billion Orientals are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Oriental economy, worth 725 trillion Pax Romanas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 159,755 Pax Romanas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The reams of paperwork accompanying any electronic item are a recognised contributor to national deforestation, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, and major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day. 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 74,186th in the world and 553rd in Europe for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 343.64 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
