The NationStates of Soled is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Asmund Stieknosår with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.428 billion Övkallskar hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wattnsluta. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Övkallsk economy, worth a remarkable 2,075 trillion gulls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 167,039 gulls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, religion is strictly forbidden within school grounds, and Asmund Stieknosår's recent "I have a dream that we will fight them by raking muck on the beaches" speech seems a little derivative to many. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Soled's national animal is the Zombie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Odatru.

Soled is ranked 170,899th in the world and 25th in Tiandi for Most Pro-Market, scoring -65.33 on the Rand Index.
