The Republic of Solmetria is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Alan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.608 billion Solmetrians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Soliste. The average income tax rate is 84.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Solmetrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,324 trillion Sol coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 114,084 Sol coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Solmetria is building an army to protect its overseas territories, party-lovers often change religions just for the weekend, legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass, and the official Solmetrian Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Solmetria's national animal is the Homo sapiens, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Solmetria is ranked 9,794th in the world and 493rd in The North Pacific for Best Weather, with 232 meters of sunlight.
