The Watchfires of SoL-1 is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, prohibition of alcohol, and ban on automobiles. The hard-working, cynical, devout population of 17.939 billion SoL-1ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Social Policy are also considered important. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.4%.

The strong SoL-1ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,014 trillion $$s a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 56,561 $$s, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 310,015 per year while the poor average 5,258, a ratio of 59.0 to 1.

Signs stating "You Must be This Tall to Enter" have started appearing outside retirement homes, the government prefers to kill off its enemies by peaceful means, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, and citizens are prohibited from raising their voice above thirty decibels in commercial districts. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. SoL-1's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

SoL-1 is ranked 121,728th in the world and 1st in Republic of Uganda for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 78.04 on the Hayek Index.
