The Grand Duchy of Metania-Sol is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Lucius Iceling with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.706 billion Metania-Solians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boreal. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Metania-Solian economy, worth 258 trillion blades a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 151,491 blades, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Calling dibs is an unalienable right, the leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace', anti-government web sites are springing up, and the nation is known abroad mostly for its Parliamentary antics. Crime is totally unknown. Metania-Sol's national animal is the weasel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Pantheon of Light.

Metania-Sol is ranked 8,574th in the world and 34th in New Western Empire for Lowest Crime Rates, with 97.97 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
