The United Kingdom of Het Solen is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and public floggings. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 873 million Solenians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phoxchester. The average income tax rate is 36.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Solenian economy, worth 103 trillion kronor a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 118,698 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Students at universities think exercise bikes are pieces of abstract art, crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and sneezing pedestrians are grabbed by alley-lurking doctors. Crime is totally unknown. Het Solen's national animal is the crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Het Solen is ranked 169,771st in the world and 66th in Political Compass Memes for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 48.52 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
