The Rogue Nation of Sol Terra is a very large, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 195 million Sol Terrans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Welfare, with Education, Healthcare, and International Aid also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 39.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Sol Terran economy, worth 5.98 trillion shells a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Basket Weaving, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 30,657 shells, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, the working classes live and die on the fields of the farming communes, and high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sol Terra's national animal is the penguin, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.

Sol Terra is ranked 278,383rd in the world and 81st in Lily for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 34,704 Standard Monetary Units.
