The '''Oriente Protectorate''' was founded in [[3086]], after the dissolution of the [[Free Worlds League]]. Descended from one of the original founding states of the League, the Oriente Protectorate is a fusion of the [[Grand Duchy of Oriente]], the Protectorate, and the [[Duchy of Orloff]]. Oriente is theoretically a representative government, but it operates under military rule, much like the [[Free Worlds League]] after the fall of the [[Star League]].
