The Sultanate of Sultanat of Turkistan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Padişah Mikail I with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 4.592 billion Turks are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large 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 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Turkish economy, worth 628 trillion Turkish Lire a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,813 Turkish Lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Third world countries are rich in "I Love İstanbul" t-shirts, museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, priests are being drafted by the church load, and libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars. 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 5,242nd in the world and 133rd in the West Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 122.18 Bank.
