The Mercantile Coalition League of Samuelstani is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Samual I with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, aversion to nipples, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 9.625 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Svastian City. The average income tax rate is 23.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Samuelstanian economy, worth a remarkable 4,307 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 447,552 Puppies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, the carbon tax fund gladly supplies warm blankets when the poor can't pay their heating bills, lawyers are ordering red ink and 'Cease and Desist' rubber stamps in preparation for the return of copyright law, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. 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.

Samuelstani is ranked 57,226th in the world and 235th in Europeia for Most Pro-Market, scoring 53.22 on the Rand Index.
