The People's Republic of Sattelbach is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sachem niklkanikl with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 2.071 billion Sattelbachians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — 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 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Sattelbachian economy, worth 129 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Tourism. Average income is 62,344 Thalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Protests are legal but strictly supervised, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, and the government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits. 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, and its national religion is none.

Sattelbach is ranked 13,703rd in the world and 764th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,349.34 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
