|Leader||Emperor Samual I|
The Mercantile Coalition League of Samuelstani is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Samual I with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, aversion to nipples, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 9.272 billion Samuelstanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Svastian City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Samuelstanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,848 trillion Puppies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 415,064 Puppies, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,219,669 per year while the poor average 111,280, a ratio of 11.0 to 1.
The government snoops on private internet connections, the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators, and an IT mega-corporation has a patent pending on the rectangle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Samuelstani's national animal is the Emperor Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Catholicism.
