If you add that many dummies and you think that the distribution of the
coefficients is something meaningful than that still sounds like a
fixed effects model to me. I would strongly recommend that you have a
good look at the -xt- commands, because this dummie way of doing fixed
effects is at best a computationally inefficient way of doing it and at
worse wrong.

Hope this helps,
