The United Kingdom of Het Solen is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, ban on automobiles, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 702 million Solenians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phoxchester. The average income tax rate is 32.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Solenian economy, worth 84.7 trillion kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 120,587 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Art criticism in Het Solen is scathingly destructive, meat-eating is frowned upon, trying to toast marshmallows in an electric fireplace just isn't the same, and sales of trenchcoats are on the rise. Crime is totally unknown. Het Solen's national animal is the crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Het Solen is ranked 28,753rd in the world and 11th in Political Compass Memes for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 5,504.86 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
