The Galactic Solar Empire of The Republic of Western Sol is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Supreme leader G3U-GTU with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, ritual sacrifices, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.497 billion West solarians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Osmarch. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 44.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Republic of Western Solian economy, worth 317 trillion Catuns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 211,801 Catuns, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

Teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house, families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country, immigrants who don't like the taste of Republic of Western Solian Turnip Chips are immediately deported, and the nation's weary schoolchildren excel at sport but must count scores on their fingers. Crime is totally unknown. The Republic of Western Sol's national animal is the Solarian bombardier beetle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The scientific method.

The Republic of Western Sol is ranked 37,528th in the world and 504th in 10000 Islands for Healthiest Citizens, with 7.03 bananas ingested per day.
