The Ottoman Empire of Susquehannia is a huge, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 766 million Ottomans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople. The average income tax rate is 18.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Susquehannian economy, worth 40.8 trillion Ottoman Lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 53,311 Ottoman Lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Sports journals are full of uplifting puff-pieces on professional boxers, weapons produced by newly nationalized armaments factories have been found to contain sawdust instead of gunpowder, corrupt industrial practices are spreading like a plague, and soldiers are equipped with multi-million Ottoman Lira battlesuits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Susquehannia's national animal is the Ottoman Caracal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Susquehannia is ranked 96,958th in the world and 162nd in Commonwealth of Liberty for Highest Economic Output, with 40.8 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
