Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Witching Hour of The Solstice Confederation is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its enslaved workforce, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 2.782 billion Confederates enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antaevatum. The average income tax rate is 7.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Solstice economy, worth 410 trillion Sovereigns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 147,671 Sovereigns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

All footpaths have tollbooths, young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangness and Sorcery, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes. Crime is totally unknown. The Solstice Confederation's national animal is the Absol, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Cosmarchy.

The Solstice Confederation is ranked 140,537th in the world and 171st in Lone Wolves United for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -12.25 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
