The Kingdom of Soleanna is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Soren III with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 9.154 billion Soleanneans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 60.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Soleannean economy, worth a remarkable 1,245 trillion Soleannean Aris a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 136,092 Soleannean Aris, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 485,577 per year while the poor average 27,421, a ratio of 17.7 to 1.

Concert halls sport signs proclaiming "No Shorts, Sandals or Swastikas", hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", female smokers cut their hair and don suits to get into male-only clubs, and fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Soleanna's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Solarian Orthodox.

Soleanna is ranked 20,800th in the world and 1st in Mobius for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,219.63 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
