The Holy Empire of Sultan Morgan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Sultan Morgan with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, smutty television, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 22.669 billion subjects are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Holy City of Sultan Morgan. The income tax rate is 100%.

The all-consuming Sultan Morganian economy, worth a remarkable 3,938 trillion Holy Empire Lire a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 173,749 Holy Empire Lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Books are so highly regarded in Sultan Morgan that libraries are often revered as holy shrines, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, and record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sultan Morgan's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Praise for the Motherland.

Sultan Morgan is ranked 192,106th in the world and 80th in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Primitive, scoring -272.6 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
