The People's Republic of Sattelbach is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 577 million Sattelbachians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sattelbach. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Sattelbachian economy, worth 21.0 trillion Sattelbachers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 36,327 Sattelbachers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, the same 577 social media bloggers always loudly and immediately agree with Leader's every word on Twitcher, and the nation wears its high incidence of chromosomal diseases as a badge of pride. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sattelbach's national animal is the Württemberger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sattelbach is ranked 197,269th in the world and 8,867th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -93.22 on the Rand Index.
