The Ascendancy of Solaryia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Consul Conti Bellarys with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.856 billion Solaryis enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eridanis. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Solaryian economy, worth 366 trillion Solaryi Floris a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 128,192 Solaryi Floris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers, the new national anthem passes the Turing Test, board shorts have replaced board rooms, and officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Solaryia's national animal is the Pyrrhian Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Woolooism.

Solaryia is ranked 113,637th in the world and 102nd in The Western Isles for Most Stationary, with 134.3422056876 Days.
