The People's Republic of Solaku is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Comrade Ham with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.676 billion Solakuans 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 prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Red Quarters. The average income tax rate is 62.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Solakuan economy, worth 474 trillion pitiscoins 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. 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 an impressive 177,476 pitiscoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The carbon footprint falls along with the human footprint during war, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, and government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Solaku's national animal is the emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Commercialism.

Solaku is ranked 7,388th in the world and 419th in Lazarus for Most Corrupt Governments, with 112.03 Kickbacks Per Hour.
