The Devlet-i ʿAlīye of Hamidiye is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Sultan Mustafa the sixth with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, public floggings, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.903 billion subjects of the sultan are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, 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 Konstantiniyye. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.8%.

The very strong Haminid economy, worth 461 trillion Kuruses 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, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, 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 94,030 Kuruses, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.

A good deed is rewarded with a thank you note attached to a deportation order, politicians that report exaggerated crowd sizes for their speeches are dismissed for being delusional, the path to inner peace is paved with state-mandated punishment, and there is an abondance of ackawi and zartschmelzend in every Haminid grocery store. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hamidiye's national animal is the swallow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Islam.

Hamidiye is ranked 109,870th in the world and 3,998th in Osiris for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 459.24 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
