The Solus

Population40 million

The Empire of The Solus is a small, genial nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate population of 40 million Solusians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 58.5%.

The sizeable but inefficient Solusian economy, worth 1.17 trillion Solusian Coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 29,306 Solusian Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

School plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment, citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons, the government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority, and sending sick politicians "Get Well Soon" cards is considered bribery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Solus's national animal is the Solusian Silver Bobcat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Solus is ranked 204,282nd in the world and 1,210th in 10000 Islands for Most Patriotic, with 4.46 flags saluted per person per day.
