The Communes of United Syndicates of Sol is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by the National Committee with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.316 billion revolutionaries hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jezero. The average income tax rate is 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Syndicalist economy, worth 172 trillion taffies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 131,146 taffies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Syndicalist mussels the biggest in Democratic Socialist Assembly, and the government's stance on marriage is 'Let revolutionaries marry themselves'. Crime is totally unknown. United Syndicates of Sol's national animal is the black cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

United Syndicates of Sol is ranked 126,443rd in the world and 179th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 13,114.63 Standard Monetary Units.
