The United Kingdom of Soldera is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 5.279 billion Solderans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Branwen. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Solderan economy, worth 132 trillion crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 25,132 crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, flight attendants rip down curtains with revolutionary fervor, extreme political groups are outlawed, and prison visits increase substantially during election years. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Soldera's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Soldera is ranked 178,115th in the world and 64th in Rushmore for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 384.27 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
