The Philippine Empire (officially the Empire of the Philippines) is an imperial monarchy that has existed since the coup d'état of Nísqua Saval on May 17, 1948, and is considered the only true modern example of an empire. It governs territory from New Guinea and Borneo to Formosa, and also controls the puppet states of Vietnam and Laos, which it has ruled since defeating the United States, China, and their allies in the Vietnam War, which ended in 1976 with the Fall of Saigon to Philippine forces. It shares borders with Indonesia to the south, Cambodia, Thailand, and Myanmar to the west, Papua New Guinea to the east, and China to the north-northwest, as well as maritime borders with Malaysia, Singapore, and West Australia. The current emperor is Komay Saval, who has ruled since 1993, when his father, Jérazo Saval, stepped down on charges of assaulting the Imperial Defense Minister's wife. With over 230 million living within its boundaries as of 1997, the Philippine Empire contains the 4th-largest population in the world after China, India, and the United States. Since the Treaty of Singapore in June 1979, the Empire has established slow trade and economic relations with the outside world, attempting to attract an influx of stability and mitigate hostility, especially from the United States, China, and Korea, all of whom had suffered great loss at the hands of Imperial troops in the previous forty years.
