The Porphyrogénnētos of The Oriental Empire is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Alexios de Lusignan Palaiologos with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, unlimited-speed roads, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.199 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 large, corrupt, socially-minded 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 85.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Oriental economy, worth 685 trillion Histamenons 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 163,155 Histamenons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The disabled are forced to undergo an MRI scan every time they pick up their benefit payments, the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills, it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations, and party affiliation is just as irrelevant as campaign promises. 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 Branta ruficollis, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Oriental Orthodoxy.

The Oriental Empire is ranked 4,671st in the world and 77th in Europe for Highest Poor Incomes, with 137,541.57 Standard Monetary Units.
