The Solphean Puppeted Theocracy of Isolationstan is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Grand Priest Milotropol Orpheca with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 2.405 billion Solphiets are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Solphea. The average income tax rate is 70.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Solphean economy, worth 228 trillion Solphios a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 94,833 Solphios, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, imitation is the sincerest form of felony, Grand Priest Milotropol Orpheca can finally stop kneading the dough and start rolling in it instead, and government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Isolationstan's national animal is the Solphea's Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Solpheism.

Isolationstan is ranked 153,122nd in the world and 12th in Coldonia for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.78 percentage of bribes refused.
