The Ottoman Empire of Rasnam is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Sultan and Caliph Sabahattin Özkul Osman with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.215 billion Ottomans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.9%.

The powerhouse Ottoman economy, worth 99.6 trillion Ottoman Lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 81,982 Ottoman Lire, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 415,503 per year while the poor average 8,973, a ratio of 46.3 to 1.

Women are seen and not heard, Sultan and Caliph Sabahattin Özkul Osman has just been declared ruler of Rasnam in an international press conference, Wahabbi Islam has been named as Rasnam's national religion, and lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rasnam's national animal is the Grey Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Wahabbi Islam.

Rasnam is ranked 5,335th in the world and 16th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 7,545.25 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
