The Solis Imperium of Woleve Atraland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Sol Invictus Aleksandre Mikhov II with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.821 billion Atralandians 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sol Vitorri. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Atralandian economy, worth 561 trillion Arctoes a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 146,988 Arctoes, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Stoogery and pratfalls are about as scathingly clever as Atralandian humor gets, professional athletes can't see balls amid the deluge of advertisements, kitchen patrol is dominated by ten-year-old runts, and the national Police Academies have dedicated infant wings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Woleve Atraland's national animal is the Secretary Bird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Wolevan Solism.

Woleve Atraland is ranked 15,673rd in the world and 23rd in The Hole To Hide In for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 331,468 Standard Monetary Units.
