The Protectorate of Solidair is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Order with a fair hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.81 billion Solidairians 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 large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mimbam City. The average income tax rate is 83.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Solidairian economy, worth 540 trillion Solidairian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 112,406 Solidairian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Patriotic citizens chant "there's only one Solidair" at foreigners, road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, and translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates. Crime is totally unknown. Solidair's national animal is the giraffe, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Solidair is ranked 9,111th in the world and 533rd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 90.37 on the Human Development Index.
