The Free People's State of Solmetria is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its soft-spoken computers, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.217 billion Solmetrians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Soliste. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Solmetrian economy, worth 331 trillion sol coins 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 Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 102,921 sol coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Solmetrian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, and the government is seen as openly hostile to all religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Solmetria's national animal is the homo sapiens, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Solmetria is ranked 11,025th in the world and 597th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 118.85 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
