The People's Republic of Sattelbach is a huge, genial nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 614 million Sattelbachians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded 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 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Sattelbachian economy, worth 24.7 trillion Sattelbachers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is 40,249 Sattelbachers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, the same 614 social media bloggers always loudly and immediately agree with Leader's every word on Twitcher, the nation wears its high incidence of chromosomal diseases as a badge of pride, and shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals. 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.

Sattelbach is ranked 142,831st in the world and 6,128th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -3.46 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
