The Alley Cat of The Oriental Empire is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Athanasia II Augustina with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, avant-garde cinema, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.908 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 Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Oriental economy, worth 804 trillion Pax Romanas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 163,819 Pax Romanas, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

People often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, the construction of massive skyscrapers seems to be the result of The Oriental Empire's mid-life crisis, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, and primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit. 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 9,585th in the world and 138th in Europe for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 34.36 Bank.
