The Mercantile Coalition League of Samuelstani is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Samual I with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 11.185 billion Samuelstanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Svastian City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Samuelstanian economy, worth a remarkable 4,130 trillion Puppies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 369,315 Puppies, with the richest citizens earning 9.7 times as much as the poorest.

The national anthem is considered broadly offensive to those who don't believe in Catholicism, pro-life activists often lecture pregnant women undergoing routine prenatal screening, Samuelstani's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, and the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Samuelstani's national animal is the Emperor Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Samuelstani is ranked 203,847th in the world and 1,115th in Europeia for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -19.7 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
