The People's Republic of Sattelbach is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 403 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 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but sluggish Sattelbachian economy, worth 13.2 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, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is 32,700 Sattelbachers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, and paranoid museum guards keep a lookout for any animated displays attempting to escape the premises after dark. 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 Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
