The Grand Duchy of Solitra is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Grand Duke Solitra with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, vat-grown people, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.801 billion Solitrans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Northgorge. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The enormous but inefficient Solitran economy, worth a remarkable 1,204 trillion Sols a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 122,865 Sols, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Employees who skip lunch to avoid sub-par cafeteria food risk getting fired, the police think a properly conducted criminal investigation is a real pain, wrongful arrests abound as 'criminals' blame the guy next to them, and the once prosperous capital is in utter decline. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Solitra's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Solitra is ranked 101,250th in the world and 194th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Most Average, scoring 35.29 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
