The Heminėweude of Soltsteed is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Alexander van den Hågen with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 10.492 billion Såutstedern hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asħwelle. The average income tax rate is 42.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Såutstedisħ economy, worth a remarkable 1,259 trillion shillings a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 120,001 shillings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, birth rates have hit an all-time low, children are raised bilingual from an early age, and UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news. Crime is totally unknown. Soltsteed's national animal is the stallion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Soltsteed is ranked 17,746th in the world and 13th in Field Egg Group for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 5,770.98 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
