OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Haven of Satelight is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Alexander Romenenko with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 15.399 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 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.

Nude art is becoming wildly popular, the government is seen as openly hostile to all religion, smoking is banned in public areas, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. 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 106th in European Union and 111,672nd in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -27 on the Hayek Index.
