The Second Spring Republic of Solaryia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Consul Conti Bellarys with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, anti-smoking policies, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 4.935 billion SolaryÝ 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 94.3%.

The frighteningly efficient SolaryÝ economy, worth 818 trillion SolaryÝ FlorÝs 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 165,927 SolaryÝ FlorÝs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns, and high school band practice is often crashed by technicolor-clad ravers. 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 Surovian Catholic Church.

Solaryia is ranked 124,758th in the world and 162nd in The Western Isles for Most Income Equality, scoring 29.98 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
