The Sultanate of Saterun is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Sultan Burak Marja with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, public floggings, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, cynical population of 6.608 billion Sateryuns are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anasb. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Saterna economy, worth 520 trillion sols a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,823 sols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

AIs make up a majority of the long-term warehouse population, doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick, the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs, and the men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saterun's national animal is the Jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Freedom of religion.

Saterun is ranked 82,345th in the world and 2,990th in Lazarus for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 9,464.19 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
