The Eldritch Tundras of United Syndicates of Sol is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Representative Aisling Moran with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.609 billion Solari 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 prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jezero. The average income tax rate is 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Solari economy, worth 666 trillion taffies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 184,790 taffies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists are pillars of society, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, and tourists are forbidden to enter Native Solari lands. Crime is totally unknown. United Syndicates of Sol's national animal is the black cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

United Syndicates of Sol is ranked 6,429th in the world and 57th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 56.96 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
