Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Witching Hour of The Solstice Confederation is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, rampant corporate plagiarism, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 3.35 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 relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antaevatum. The average income tax rate is 25.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Solstice economy, worth 547 trillion Sovereigns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 163,417 Sovereigns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Returning tourists and businessmen are detained without trial if they belong to the "wrong" religion, prudishness is on the way out, tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, and the military has declared war on all religious influence. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 90,166th in the world and 89th in Lone Wolves United for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 726.7 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
