The Empire of Solshime is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Erik with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, digital currency, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.286 billion Solshimeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of High Hrothgar. The average income tax rate is 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Solshimean economy, worth 193 trillion gold coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 150,399 gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Group photos of the members of parliament are often mistaken for family reunions, drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps", troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist, and elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Solshime's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Children of the Five Gods.

Solshime is ranked 25,588th in the world and 214th in NationStates for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,111.7 on the Edu-tellignce Test Score.
