The Devlet-i ʿAlīye of Hamidiye is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Sultan Mustafa the sixth with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 6.667 billion subjects of the sultan 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 large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Konstantiniyye. The average income tax rate is 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Hamidi economy, worth 758 trillion Kuruşs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 113,731 Kuruşs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, military geniuses responsible for brilliant campaigns are drummed out because they have close same-sex friends and an interest in interior design, young schoolchildren pledge allegiance to One Nation Under Bum Indivisible By Poo, and doughnut-makers claim their products are healthy because they are fortified with vitamins. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hamidiye's national animal is the cockroach, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Islam.

Hamidiye is ranked 99,275th in the world and 4th in Alliance of Empires for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 146,696 Standard Monetary Units.
