The Grand Duchy of Metania-Sol is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lucius Iceling with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.719 billion Metania-Solians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boreal. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Metania-Solian economy, worth 261 trillion blades a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 151,863 blades, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Promising seven years of bad luck leads to seven years of community service, terrorists are on a first name basis with the officials that stamp their passports, political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, and fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate. Crime is totally unknown. Metania-Sol's national animal is the weasel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Pantheon of Light.

Metania-Sol is ranked 3,470th in the world and 13th in New Western Empire for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 214.5 Bank.
