The Aegean Kingdom of The Oriental Empire is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Alexios d'Asselineau Palaiologos with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, enslaved workforce, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.914 billion Orientals 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nicaea. The average income tax rate is 80.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Oriental economy, worth 469 trillion Histamenons a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 161,055 Histamenons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government violently suppresses separatist movements, bizarre-looking creatures called 'Aquiladogs' dominate wildlife preserves, pawn shop reality shows dominate basic cable, and military barracks resemble five-star hotels. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Oriental Empire's national animal is the Aquila, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Orthodox.

The Oriental Empire is ranked 164,148th in the world and 881st in Europe for Most Avoided, scoring 0.56 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
