When Sultan Okan Timur
XIV inherited the throne, he ruled over an ancient empire mired
in the past. With internal strife threatening to tear the Sultanate
apart, and more modern nation states waiting to dismember it, the
Sultan realized the only way Osman would survive was through radical
reforms. The recipient of the bulk of the reforms was the bloated
and inefficient civilian government, ruled by clans of eunchs and
petty aristocrats. Backed by loyal generals he routed out the corruption
of the system and create a new, modern, and powerful government
in it's place: the Civil Directorate.
Counterpart to the Military
Directorate and Millet Directorate, the Civil Directorate is resposible
for all government functions of the Sultanate. As it's goal is to
regulate, govern, and improve every aspect of life in the Sultante,
there are many smaller directorates within the Civil Directorate,
from the powerful Political Directorate that ensures loyalty to
the smaller Postage Directorate (who produce stamps and postage)
or Signage Directorate (who regulate signs).
With this powerful tool,
the Sultan has been able to pull the Sultanate out of the Dark Ages
and into the modern world. Now, on the cusp of the 22nd century
Osman stands ready to forge a new destiny.
