OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Haven of Satelight is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Alexander Romenenko with a fair hand, and notable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The compassionate, intelligent population of 15.726 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, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Healthcare and Social Equality are on the agenda. 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.

Elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts. 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 440th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 324 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
