The Principality of Solenoide is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Tao Greygoose with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.07 billion Solenoideans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maxima. The average income tax rate is 17.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Solenoid economy, worth 291 trillion bars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 140,850 bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, Solenoide successfully hosted the The North Pacific Olympics, and war vets look after war animals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Solenoide's national animal is the snail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lead to Water.

Solenoide is ranked 54,063rd in the world and 1,676th in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 7,499.95 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
