The United Kingdom of Solimun is a massive, genial nation, notable for its stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.395 billion Solimites have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solimun City. The average income tax rate is 37.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Solimunian economy, worth 88.2 trillion Solis a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 63,202 Solis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sections of the police receive paramilitary training, people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, oddly patriotic flash mobs spontaneously sing the national anthem, and photos of picturesque coastal buildings are set against a backdrop of smokestacks and ship hulls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Solimun's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Solimun is ranked 44,964th in the world and 2,421st in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 51.48 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
