The Commonwealth of Seolia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed population of 672 million Seolians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crystal City. The average income tax rate is 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Seolian economy, worth 77.0 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 114,563 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, a new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water, every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, and wounded veterans can only get prosthetics if they agree to become walking billboards for the arms industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Seolia's national animal is the Northern goshawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Seolia is ranked 190,284th in the world and 317th in Conch Kingdom for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.73 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
