The Empire of Solariumis is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and compulsory military service. The hard-working, cynical, devout population of 118 million Solariumi are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.5%.

The very strong Solariumi economy, worth 8.10 trillion Soulis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is 68,633 Soulis, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 196,640 per year while the poor average 19,064, a ratio of 10.3 to 1.

Solariumis's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, all tariffs have been abolished, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and the government has solemnly sworn not to look up other nations' internet browsing history if the favor is returned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Solariumis's national animal is the Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Solariumis is ranked 69,101st in the world and 3,111th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 69.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
