The Oriental Empire

The Homorhythm of The Oriental Empire is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Athanasia II with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 6.331 billion Orientals enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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 94.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Oriental economy, worth a remarkable 1,042 trillion Pax Romanas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 164,615 Pax Romanas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, teachers are routinely tested to keep their jobs, astronauts take one small step for The Oriental Empire and one giant step backward from confrontation, and the countryside is shrouded by wind farms. 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.

The Oriental Empire is ranked 226,938th in the world and 1,097th in Europe for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 19.8 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
