The Caliphate of Rumelistan is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 11.034 billion Rumelistanis are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.6%.

The strong Rumelistani economy, worth 683 trillion Dinars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 61,963 Dinars, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

It is a crime to operate a combine harvester while intoxicated, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, Rumelistan has designated Rumelistan City as its capital city, and Leader has just been declared ruler of Rumelistan in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rumelistan's national animal is the Ostrich, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rumelistan is ranked 92,856th in the world and 19th in Greater Ixnay for Most Beautiful Environments, with 564.52 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
