The Sultanate of Neo-Ottomania is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, state-planned economy, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 496 million Neo-Ottomanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neo-Constantinople. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Neo-Ottomanian economy, worth 23.6 trillion Ottoman lire a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 47,543 Ottoman lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, the people are famous throughout the region for their perfect yellow teeth, families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country, and vacationing Neo-Ottomanians expect to be treated as royalty. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neo-Ottomania's national animal is the Neo-Ottomanian pink bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Neo-Ottomania is ranked 30,148th in the world and 1,442nd in The North Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 69.67 Effective Tax Rate.
