The Solar Ottomans

The Space Republic of The Solar Ottomans is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Shantae Dogan with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory military service, and daily referendums. The compassionate, devout population of 9.77 billion Turks are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Istanbul. The average income tax rate is 84.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ottoman economy, worth 795 trillion lire a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 81,418 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Signs stating "You Must be This Tall to Enter" have started appearing outside retirement homes, unshaven men are viewed with suspicion in courts of law, light entertainment isn't dead, and citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Solar Ottomans's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam and Christianity.

The Solar Ottomans is ranked 74,607th in the world and 2,463rd in The East Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 10,091.49 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
