The People's Republic of Sattelbach is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sachem niklkanikl with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 4.78 billion Sattelbacher 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, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sattelbach. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Sattelbachian economy, worth 263 trillion Thalers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is 55,112 Thalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People who tease dwarfs are being cut down to size, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and auditors are gutting every governmental department. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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, and its national religion is none.

Sattelbach is ranked 248,657th in the world and 10,381st in The North Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
