The Additional Pylons of Sol Liebe is a colossal, orderly nation, renowned for its avant-garde cinema, frequent executions, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.746 billion Sun Bros 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, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.9%.

The a Sun Bro economy, worth 412 trillion Jolly Cooperations a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 53,306 Jolly Cooperations, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 218,115 per year while the poor average 8,619, a ratio of 25.3 to 1.

Country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Sol Liebe flights to avoid the pay lavatories, and Maxtopian slaves are routinely sold as an optional extra for household appliances. Crime is a problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Sol Liebe's national animal is the Sun, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sol Liebe is ranked 233,325th in the world and 16th in Free Thought for Most Beautiful Environments, with 16.57 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
