The Free People's State of Solmetria is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Alan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.271 billion Solmetrians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Happytown. The average income tax rate is 62.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Solmetrian economy, worth 224 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 quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 99,045 sol coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Billions of sol coins are being poured into a space program, politicians frequently make unusual poses during speeches in hopes of inspiring the next internet fad, Solmetrian husbands are dead good at fathering kids, and a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an 'Air Brancaland' flight has been offered asylum. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 15,188th in the world and 807th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 85.82 on the Human Development Index.
