The Imperial Sultanate of Greater Ismir is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kiraz Osman with an even hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, avowedly heterosexual populace, and ubiquitous missile silos. The devout population of 1.84 billion Greater Izmiri' are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nëö-İstanbül. The average income tax rate is 51.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Greater Izmiri economy, worth 205 trillion diravcins 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 large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Information Technology. 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 an impressive 111,850 diravcins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love, social care for the elderly consists of a self help leaflet and a kick on the backside, and referenda are held for every conceivable government action. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Ismir's national animal is the Gray Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ottoman Muslim.

Greater Ismir is ranked 140,105th in the world and 72nd in Greater Cyngland for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 234.66 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
