The Republic of Solmetria is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Alan with a fair hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.332 billion Solmetrians 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Happytown. The average income tax rate is 35.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Solmetrian economy, worth 133 trillion sol coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,103 sol coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government is engaging in an agricultural trade war with Maxtopia, scaffolding is built around scaffolding to give safe access, Alan's webseries about the alleged hauntings of Happytown generates millions of views, and corporate lobbying has been outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Solmetria's national animal is the two-headed albatross, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Solmetria is ranked 87,465th in the world and 4,400th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,153.27 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
