The Republic of New Othman is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Premier Akonder Tufan with an even hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 21.52 billion Othmanis enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Ankara. The average income tax rate is 22.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Othmanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,182 trillion Lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 147,905 Lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months, young adults still believe that Saker Falcons deliver newborns to expecting parents, televangelists often claim they can cure your Lupus if you donate enough money, and the government response to disaster victims starving for bread is "let them eat stale cake". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Othman's national animal is the Saker Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

New Othman is ranked 39,258th in the world and 13th in The Cornellian Empire for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,587.51 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
