The Solar Power of Sol Ring is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by MrSolRing with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, strictly enforced bedtime, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.561 billion Sol Ringians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of SolRingCity. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54.4%.

The powerhouse Sol Ringian economy, worth a remarkable 2,837 trillion manas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 106,820 manas, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Companies are turning to trained dragons for their most menial jobs, diminutive Sol Ringian generals are feared for their aggressiveness, tens of thousands of revelers have been arrested for trying to celebrate the recent world anniversary (Sol Ring has found 4 easter eggs), and the recently liberated free press cautiously uses compliment sandwiches to cushion its criticisms of MrSolRing. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sol Ring's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Sol Ring is ranked 20,513th in the world and 28th in Nederland for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
