The Mercantile Coalition League of Samuelstani is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Samual I with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 13.007 billion Samuelstanians 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 tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Svastian City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Samuelstanian economy, worth a remarkable 5,128 trillion Puppies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 394,273 Puppies, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,135,303 per year while the poor average 108,757, a ratio of 10.4 to 1.

RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, a crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun, the people's love for Emperor Samual I is little more than self-preservation, and hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Samuelstani's national animal is the Emperor Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Samuelstani is ranked 238,092nd in the world and 733rd in Europeia for Fattest Citizens, with 1.58 Obesity Rate.
