The Anatolian Kingdom of The Oriental Empire is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Empress Athanasia Augustina with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, public floggings, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 4.531 billion Orientals have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Oriental economy, worth 722 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 159,396 Pax Romanas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Empress Athanasia Augustina is considering changing the Oriental flag to one with more glitter, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, the fattest folk in The Oriental Empire look to be the happiest ones, and gossip magazines have pictures of Empress Athanasia Augustina sunbathing on the beach with political rivals. 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 104,271st in the world and 856th in Europe for Safest, scoring 76.09 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
