The Disun Empire of Sol-Nippon is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.419 billion Sol-Nipponese 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 relatively small, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solkyoto. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.9%.

The strong Sol-Nipponese economy, worth 196 trillion Solyens a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 57,549 Solyens, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

Prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, gardeners must genetically test weeds for unique traits before digging them up, suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps, and bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sol-Nippon's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sol-Nippon is ranked 58,231st in the world and 4th in Mobius for Most Pro-Market, scoring 56.86 on the Rand Index.
