The Orte Empire is a country in the Drifters world.
Sixty years ago, Orte was originally a poverty-ridden feudal state. However a man with exalted speeches and clever manipulation of the masses led to civil unrest in the kingdom. Reorganizing itself as the Orte Empire, the nation began an aggressive expansion policy, annexing all neighboring countries around it. The Empire preached human supremacy and promoted persecution of demi-human races. Shortly after founding the Empire, the man committed suicide for unknown reasons.
The Orte Empire officially debuts in episode 2, in which the elf village is burnt down by Orte soldiers led by Aram.
