Overview Factbook Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federative Noocracy of Solm is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Supreme Perspica John Hunt with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 18.727 billion Solmians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The medium-sized, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corvian. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 53.9%.

The all-consuming Solmian economy, worth a remarkable 1,826 trillion Forns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is 97,536 Forns, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, teachers are routinely tested to keep their jobs, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Solm's national animal is the White Tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheism de facto.

Solm is ranked 153,368th in the world and 3rd in Ellorea for Most Primitive, scoring -146.96 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
