Republics of the Solar Union

Population419 million

CapitalNew America


The Federation of Republics of the Solar Union is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 419 million Solarians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New America. The average income tax rate is 7.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Solarian economy, worth 28.1 trillion Sols a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 67,105 Sols, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

All the world's a stage for Solarian political theatrics, snitches get riches, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, and Republics of the Solar Union has designated New America as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Republics of the Solar Union's national animal is the chicken, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Republics of the Solar Union is ranked 73,496th in the world and 1st in A Milky Way for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 4,206.28 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
