The InterSol Federation of The Pacific Ring is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Executive Andris Fennik with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.547 billion Citizens are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Diamond-Onyx. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Federal economy, worth 688 trillion E-Federal Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 270,184 E-Federal Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, and a child's only Trickster Night scare is the sight of their parents dancing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Pacific Ring's national animal is the Cascadian Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Cordian Records.

The Pacific Ring is ranked 28,750th in the world and 361st in the Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 688 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
