The Holy Republic of Solomons Land is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Solomon Rusk with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, ban on automobiles, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 4.89 billion Solomons Landers 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mill Valley. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Solomons Lander economy, worth 584 trillion shekels a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,609 shekels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, pregnant hitchhikers with signs requesting rides to "competent care" are a common sight on Solomons Lander roads, behind every great person are three dozen other people passing great memos, and schoolchildren learn an R-rated version of "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Solomons Land's national animal is the Gazelle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Placeholder.

Solomons Land is ranked 196,730th in the world and 225th in New Western Empire for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -11.75 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
