Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Aretist Paradise of The Solstice Confederation is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its enslaved workforce, complete lack of prisons, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 2.624 billion Confederates enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antaevatum. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Solstice economy, worth 353 trillion Buostors a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 134,739 Buostors, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 646,944 per year while the poor average 16,386, a ratio of 39.5 to 1.

Fresh food is a thing of the past due to onerous testing standards, bris parties are all the rage, mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance, and the nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers. Crime is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Solstice Confederation's national animal is the Absol, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the Cosmarchy.

The Solstice Confederation is ranked 28,712th in the world and 31st in Lone Wolves United for Highest Drug Use, scoring 96.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
