The People's Republic of Sattelbach is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sachem niklkanikl with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 2.093 billion Sattelbachians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — 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 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Sattelbachian economy, worth 131 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Tourism. Average income is 62,934 Thalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The police have been known to wiretap confessional boxes, tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, and children are terrified that the 'flying police monster' will come to take them away in the night. 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.
