|Current Ruler|| Lilly Satou,|
|First Appearance||5ive Stages|
The Satou Empire (formerly the Scottish Commonwealth) is a large empire spanning over one third of the planet Earth. Originally centred around Edinburgh, Scotland, the empire expanded tenfold during the Third World War. Currently, the empire spans from North America through various parts of Asia. It serves as the main setting, and antagonistic force, of the 5ive series.
Upon being occupied by the Satou Empire, countries are stripped of their name and instead titled Annex followed by a letter from the Latin or Greek alphabets, and the populace of the areas named after the stated letter (i.e. Ireland is Annex B, and its populace known as Bs). Scotland serves as an exception to this rule, instead being called the "Homeland".
List of areas occupied by the Satou Empire:
The militaristic force behind the Satou Empire has also enacted wars on several other countries, including Mozambique, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Guatemala and Cuba, though either retreated or were forced out by opposing forces. Additionally, while still under the name of "Scottish Commonwealth", they were supported by the governments of Brazil and Argentina, though they have since banded together with several other countries to create the opposing Federación de Acción.

- The following section references the events of 5ive Stages.
The Satou Empire is an absolute monarchy, with the royal family holding most, if not all, the governmental power. There are three levels to the governing system in place: the High Council, the Mid Council and the Low Council. The High Council consists of the ruler of the Satou Empire (the emperor/empress), various princes and princesses in line to become the emperor/empress. The Mid Council consists of several more princes and princesses as well as the highest earls and military leaders. The Low Council consists of 28 members: the acting governors of every Annex.
Shizune is deaf and mute, and hence needs someone to interpret her sign language.
The Satou Empire uses a calender system dated the "Hakamichi calender". In relation to the Gregorian calendar used by territories prior to becoming a part of the Empire, the year is dated in accordance to the beginning of the Scottish Commonwealth in 1940; during the early years of the second World War. The Gregorian calender dates the setting of 5ive as 2033, and as such is dated as 93 Initial Annexation in the Hakamichi calender.
