The Constitutional Monarchy of Solcaros is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 10.367 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solcaros City. The average income tax rate is 83.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Solcarosian economy, worth a remarkable 1,831 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 176,635 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Polite commuters on the Solcaros City Metro always let hurried workers off the train first, Air Solcaros is rumored to receive more government funding than the Solcarosian Air Force, the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', and meat prices are soaring as the farming industry struggle under government-imposed restrictions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Solcaros's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Solcaros is ranked 204,785th in the world and 7,601st in Osiris for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -22.63 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
