Occident, n.:
The part of the world lying west (or east) of the Orient. It
is largely inhabited by Christians, powerful sub-tribe of the
Hypocrites, whose principal industries are murder and cheating,
which they are pleased to call "war" and "commerce." These,
also, are the principal industries of the Orient.
-- Ambrose Bierce, "The Devil's Dictionary"
