The Sultanate of Solarcaine is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sultan Caboose bin Sayyid with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, smutty television, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.889 billion Solarcaineans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ahl al-Istiqama. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Solarcainean economy, worth 550 trillion Rials a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 190,693 Rials, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 751,908 per year while the poor average 32,783, a ratio of 22.9 to 1.

The military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, state media features lively debates such as whether pineapple on pizza is an acceptable topping, and parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend. Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Solarcaine's national animal is the Octopus, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ibadi Islam.

Solarcaine is ranked 157,967th in the world and 3rd in Solarcaine for Most Avoided, scoring 0.85 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
