|Animal||Neo-Ottomanian pink bear|
The Sultanate of Neo-Ottomania is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, fear of technology, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 294 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 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Neo-Ottomanian economy, worth 13.1 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 Uranium Mining. 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 44,641 Ottoman lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Sending sick politicians "Get Well Soon" cards is considered bribery, citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, and thousands of picky mothers-in-law have been recruited to serve as even pickier cookery instructors. 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.
