The Ascendant Stellar Remnant of Solariia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Linus Leopold with an even hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, parental licensing program, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 10.147 billion Solariians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astromis. The average income tax rate is 30.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Solariian economy, worth a remarkable 2,347 trillion Galactic Standard Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 231,333 Galactic Standard Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, kids who move from attending a public school in the city to the country often struggle in goat milking class, citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors, and the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Solariia's national animal is the Pomeranian, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Solaron.

Solariia is ranked 45,217th in the world and 14th in Autropolis for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3,564.43 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
