The Grey Republic of Solaryia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Conti Bellarys with an even hand, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.65 billion Solaryians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Defense and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eridanis. The average income tax rate is 61.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Solaryian economy, worth 173 trillion Solar Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 104,919 Solar Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Gay couples have to travel to Brancaland to find a church that will actually let them wed, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Solaryia, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. 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.

Solaryia is ranked 5,133rd in the world and 13th in The Western Isles for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.1 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
