No, there is no such thing as political order and there is no such thing as moral order. Morals and politics change over time, sometimes they form so as to coincide nicely and well with each other and other times they cause nothing but harm as politics tries to dictate what is moral. Someday people will realize that morals are not black and white, there are gray areas where the morals are changing and these areas will affect others and when that happens the whole world will be shaken. Trying to have one set of morals, like the Ten Commandments, for everyone is just not possible. As long as there is more than one human there will be more than one set of morals.

If we had perfect moral order, just being hypothetical, then that would mean each person would be 'perfectly moral', considering there ARE morals. If everyone was perfectly moral, then that would include politicians, right? So one would think that moral order would bring about political order.
However, morals and politics are two very different ideas, so even if everyone in politics were perfectly moral, their political decisions would still be affected by their views of society mixed with their 'perfect morals'. Therefore...I don't think that one would bring the other about.

If everyone had the same morals, it would depend on what those morals were as to whether everything else would be in order.

Not if morals and political boundaries clash.

I think almost the very opposite. I think it the absence of moral order which requires political order. If moral order already existed then a lot of functions for which government is need would cease to be needed. So the politicians and political order would no longer be necessary.

Morality is so open ended, it can't be said whether one's morals or not can affect a society.
