The Protectorate of Solidair is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Order with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.675 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mimbam City. The average income tax rate is 73.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Solidairian economy, worth 272 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 major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 101,702 Solidairian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, nouveau riche farmers diligently take care of their golden calf herds, every citizen is allowed exactly fifteen minutes of fame, and prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned spouses. Crime is totally unknown. Solidair's national animal is the giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Solidair is ranked 728th in the world and 509th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 182 Valid Endorsements.
