The Devlet-i ʿAlīye of Hamidiye is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Sultan Mustafa the sixth with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, enslaved workforce, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.118 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 Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Konstantiniyye. The average income tax rate is 65.4%.

The Haminid economy, worth 241 trillion Paras 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 black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, 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 77,393 Paras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

EULAs remind customers that "Private Mode" is a browser setting rather than a promise, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews, and East Lebatuck tests its moon rovers in the barren wasteland of rural Hamidiye. 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 71,548th in the world and 4,085th in Osiris for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
