The Sustainable Utopia of Solara Terra is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Executor with a fair hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.344 billion Solara Terrans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beacon. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Solara Terran economy, worth 589 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 135,707 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Atheists in the nation feel uneasy living in buildings where they were once vilified, every workday begins with group therapy, anti-government web sites are springing up, and a well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Solara Terra's national animal is the primate, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Solara Terra is ranked 204,478th in the world and 2nd in The Triangulum Galaxy for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -21.86 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
