The Star Empire of Solaryia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Spire with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.228 billion Solaryians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eridanis. The average income tax rate is 51.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Solaryian economy, worth 122 trillion Solar Credits a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 99,662 Solar Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, foreign musicians that Spire dislikes are turned away at the border, pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card, and five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Solaryia's national animal is the Milotic, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Solaryia is ranked 115,807th in the world and 143rd in The Western Isles for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,021.28 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
