| This is an unmapped nation that currently does not exist in OpenGeofiction.
The Bai Empire (Babelic: 百帝国 bai diguo, Gohangukian:백 제국 baekjeguk, Nipponese: 百帝国 hyaku teikoku), known as the Babelic Empire or Empire of Hundred Lands, is a federal empire split into two regions - Oranian Bai and Erevian Bai - by the Strait of Bai. The empire is known to be one of the oldest empires in the world which still exists today. The current royal government of Bai has been ruling the kingdom for at least 200 years after the overthrowing of the Lin Dynasty in 1798, with the exception of the 15-year period when it was divided. The Bai Empire is a semi-constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary democracy. The current monarch of Bai is Mao Jiangshi, who has reigned since 1982, and the premier is Lai Shen Kang. The capital of the Bai Empire is Baijing (百京), known to be one of the oldest cities of the empire, with other major urban areas of the empire included key financial centre Jincheng (今城) and largest city Port Dunghoi (东海港).
Note: Taking into account the existing nations that adopted East Asian elements, this is so far the proposed route as to how Bai explorers made their journey around the world. The era of Bai exploration (by then, Bai have secured supremacy over coastal areas in Orano and built great ships) is in the 16th century until the then dynasty (Suo Dynasty) collapsed due to mismanagement of funds (around 1750s). The new regime eventually sold most of its ports to other colonial powers (e.g. Castellan or Ingerland) or otherwise the ports were left to fend for themselves. Eventually, such ports became independent states.
If you think your nation could have been involved in Bai's colonial expansion (whether conquered or assisted), state here:

Cultural distribution and TBD location of Bai Empire
Levels of states' autonomy
- Direct-controlled Districts: Closer to central rule, have to follow exactly what is required and no compromises. Though largely free to interpret slightly different. Same probably goes for some major cities (municipalities or nominated ones). May face interferences by the coordinator (smth like Massoedyas)
- Autonomous Regions: Largely free to map what is needed, though bound by some requirements. Occasional check needed (probably for more advanced users). Autonomous Regions are somewhat like former factions but have since been invaded or collapsed and taken over by the central government, who sets up a separate government kind of subject to the central govt
- Special Administrative Districts: Probably quite apart from home rule, occasionally check and have a completely separate system. May be blue or purple depending on another coordinator. SAD are factions who do not rebel against the central government and free to do what they like.
