The Federation of Orientia, more commonly known as Orientia, is a self-declared sovereign state or micronation located in Southeast Asia comprised of 8 republics completely landlocked within the Kingdom of Thailand. Orientia is a federal semi-presidential constitutional republic with Pun Watta as the de jure democratically-elected President, head of government and the de facto 'dictator' of the nation, serving in his current position since the creation of the federation in October 2019. Over 100 residents live within Orientian borders, although less than 10 of them are legal citizens. The capital is Hui City, and the largest city is Las Kritus. Orientia has 2 national languages, Tinglish (a blend of Thai and English) and English. There are 2 regional languages: Thai and Isan.
Orientia was established as a republic on 23 December 2018, and was known as the Republic of Orientia. It later transitioned into an empire, then a grand republic, and on the 8th of October, 2019, it officially became the Federation of Orientia. On the 23rd of October, Finndonia, an Orientian republic, broke off from the federation and declared war on Orientia. The government does not recognize Finndonia and subsequently sees the declaration of war as nothing but a feeble attempt at micronational conflict. Finndonia has since become an Orientian territory.

Orientia was originally formed on the 23rd of January, 2018, during Pun Watta’s vacation in Japan. He watched a YouTube video about Molossia and decided to form a micronation based on the principles of Molossia. Although excited at first, Pun found the process of expanding a micronation boring and the country slowly fell into a period of dormancy.
23 days after the creation of Orientia, Pun Watta decided to pull Orientia out of its dormancy and began a period of rapid expansion, claiming new land and increasing the country’s regional influence. He declared himself the Emperor of Orientia, crowning himself on the 15th of January. The Orientian Defense Forces were established and the country’s population grew to 7 people.
Second Period of Dormancy
Grand Republic Era
Although this era de jure lasted 5 months, it de facto lasted one day. On the 8th of October, 2019, Pun Watta formed the Grand Republic of Orientia and invaded the neighboring Kingdom of Bedroomland. The invasion was a success, and Orientian troops occupied Bedroomland until it joined Orientia as a republic, converting the Grand Republic of Orientia into the Federation of Orientia.
After the invasion of Bedroomland and the formation of the federation, Orientia witnessed an increase in population, as Finndonia, Brownland, Rallas and Nickland joined the federation. Orientia soon became the foremost political and economical power within its region. The founder of Finndonia, Finn (undisclosed surname), rose to the rank of Prime Minister and plotted to leave the Orientia. Finndonia signed a deal with Nickland to illegally break off from the federation, and, with support from other republics, eventually formed the Federal Republic of Finndonia. Finndonia later declared war on Orientia, although it was dismissed by the government.
Orientia continued to expand as Nashino, Tawanland, Slavland, and Frank joined the federation as republics. Bedroomland dissolved and became a part of the larger Watta. The Orientia Trading Company was formed, and the Orientian economy boomed. Diplomatic bonds were formed, as Orientia signed multiple treaties with the Holy Cat Empire and other nations. The Orientian Defense Forces grew in size, expanding to over 10 Army divisions, 3 Navy divisions, and 1 Air Force division at its peak. The constitution was reformed after Prime Minister Pitt Sophonsiri was exiled due to charges of treason. Pitt was later pardoned and returned to the role of Prime Minister after an amendment of the constitution by the National Congress. His republic, Brownland, declared independence from Orientia on the 5th of February 2020, as the Federation of New Port. He currently serves as the President. Corenta, an Orientian republic, has since joined New Port . Finndonia became a territory soon after.
All of Orientia's 8 republics are very humid during most seasons.
Very little is documented about Orientia's climate, as Orientia has almost the same hot, humid air during most, if not all, seasons. The highest estimated temperature is 42°C during the mid-summer period of 2019.
Birds are a very common sight in Orientia. In Hui City a large number of crows and other birds of the sort scavenge for food on the Great Hui Plains. On one instance, an Asian water monitor was seen fighting a dog behind the Presidential Palace. 1 dog (a Border Patrol officer) and 1 cat currently lives within Wattan borders.
Government and politics
Orientia is classified as a Hybrid Regime, as presidential elections are almost always rigged, and corruption is common. The most popular ideologies are Wattism and liberalism. Civil rights and LGBTQ+ rights are often debated, although no conclusion to the argument has been reached.
Although Orientia is a federal semi-presidential constitutional republic, it is de facto a dictatorship. Pun Watta is the head of government and serves as the President. The constitution states that the President "is elected via a democratic election"  although this claim has been disputed. The current Vice-President is Roy Bulsook, who has held his office since the 2020 Orientian Political Crisis. The position of President is fundamentally similar to that of a monarch, with the President being entitled to almost absolute power and immunity from all laws. The Prime Minister of Orientia is chosen by the former Prime Minister, much like the role of President. The Prime Minister is often regarded as the second-in-command to the President, and has almost the same powers as the President. The current Prime Minister is Pip Limatibul. The Deputy Prime Minister is currently Nathan Tzola.
Orientia's legislative assembly is called the National Congress of Orientia, and has 8 seats. One election takes place each year, to choose new presidents for the republics within the federation. One delegate is chosen to represent one of the eight republics in the National Congress, and must be naturally-born citizen of the republic.

Law and order
Orientian republics do not have their own police, as the Orientian Federal Police is the sole federal law enforcement agency within the federation. The Orientian Riot Police (ORP) are used to suppress riots, and were used extensively during the 2019 Plastic Head Protests. There is no standardized police equipment, although almost all full sets include a police cap, an airsoft gun (or a Nerf gun), and a bat or baton. On some occasions dogs have been used to track criminals, although the method is often ineffective.
Orientia is a member state of the Asia-Pacific Alliance, Cupertino Alliance and a former member of the Grand Unified Micronational. Orientia has engaged in no micronational wars, although it maintains a strong military for solely defensive purposes. However, the Republic of New Port has claimed to have been in a war with Orientia.

Orientia is classified as a mixed economy, as both state-owned and private companies are present in the market. The Orientia Trading Company makes up 100% of the economy, with over 175 Rigen ($58.82) made in 2019. It is one of the three state-owned companies in Orientia. Currently the first registered private film company, Ging Gong Film Studios, is developing their first film.
Mild taxation has been proposed in the National Congress, although no taxation has been formally implemented.
Popular musicians are Little P (also known as Lil’P) and Machine Gun Pitt. Lesser known artists include Hella Gang, Roy Aspin and Crompton Tom. Rap and pop music are the two most listened to genres of music.
The national sport of Orientia is Sandball, a competitive game in which players throw balls of sand at each other, until one player surrenders. It enjoys relative popularity as a recreational sport, although most civilians don’t have sandpits to use for playing. Airsoft is an extremely popular sport, with civilians, the Orientian Defense Forces and the police engaging in it as means of recreation or training.
