We present microscopic estimates for the spin-spin and spin-pseudospin interactions of the quarter-filled ladder compound , obtained by exactly diagonalizing appropriate clusters of the underlying generalized Hubbard Hamiltonian. We present evidence for a substantial interladder spin-pseudospin interaction term which would allow simultaneously for the superantiferroelectric (SAF) charge (pseudospin) ordering and spin dimerization. We discuss the values of the coupling constants appropriate for and deduce the absence of a soft antiferroelectric mode.
