The Constitutional Monarchy of Solcaros is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.622 billion Solcarosians 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 large government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solcaros City. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Solcarosian economy, worth a remarkable 1,527 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 177,195 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, and saying 'Hi Guys' to a mixed gender group of people at work is a fireable offense. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Solcaros's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Solcaros is ranked 2,419th in the world and 91st in Osiris for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 23,094.76 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
