The Shogunate of Suternia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Empress Meishō with a fair hand, and remarkable for its closed borders, fear of technology, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.87 billion Suternians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sutelinia. The average income tax rate is 42.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Suternian economy, worth 330 trillion Suters a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 115,079 Suters, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Farmers are complaining that the buzzing and the sparks from the nearby MagRail are blighting their crops, the nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low, nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, and homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes. Crime is totally unknown. Suternia's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shintoism.

Suternia is ranked 54,438th in the world and 27th in New Western Atlantic for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 67.28 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
