The People's Republic of Sattelbach is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Sachem niklkanikl with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 2.268 billion Sattelbachians 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, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sattelbach. The average income tax rate is 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Sattelbachian economy, worth 157 trillion Thalers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 69,594 Thalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government officials go door-to-door educating about the dangers of pseudoscience, the police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee, signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, and unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sattelbach's national animal is the Württemberger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none.

Sattelbach is ranked 99,039th in the world and 2,015th in The North Pacific for Largest Populations, with 2.27 billion Capita.
