The Sultanate of Sultanat of Turkistan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Padişah Mikail I with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and aversion to nipples. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 4.003 billion Turks 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.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of İstanbul. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Turkish economy, worth 519 trillion Turkish Lire a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,680 Turkish Lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Edutainment video games are taking Sultanat of Turkistan's students to the next level, the official Turkish Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, torture is illegal, and kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sultanat of Turkistan's national animal is the Grey Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Islam.

Sultanat of Turkistan is ranked 6,339th in the world and 149th in the West Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 92.8 on the Human Development Index.
