The Principality of Samostalan is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 335 million Cakavians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 40.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Cakavian economy, worth 23.9 trillion Kunas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Uranium Mining, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 71,359 Kunas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

There's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days, it is often said that only Leader could bring down Dàguó, biker gangs and fashionistas are converting to Violetism en masse, and charged suspects often have to wait years before the courts have room to judge their trial. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Samostalan's national animal is the Marten, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Samostalan is ranked 123,746th in the world and 54th in Austro Hungarian Imperium for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
