The Socialist Republic of Solral is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Winston Ilera with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, cheerful population of 2.715 billion Solarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Union City. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Solralian economy, worth 432 trillion Sunguilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 159,141 Sunguilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children aren't allowed to chew their pencils until they get home from school, fair-weather fans talk during plays while die-hard theatre enthusiasts stay at home, the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, and artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Solral's national animal is the Sun Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Solral is ranked 825th in the world and 16th in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 5,321 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
