The Haven of Satelight is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Alexander Romenenko with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 15.526 billion Satelightians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Healthcare and Social Equality are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ebor. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Satelight's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', birth rates have hit an all-time low, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Satelight's national animal is the Liquid Snake, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Euro.

Satelight is ranked 3rd in European Union and 428th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 134 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
