The Free People's State of Solmetria is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its soft-spoken computers, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.894 billion Solmetrians 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 enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Soliste. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Solmetrian economy, worth 458 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 significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is 93,587 sol coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, ghost regiments exist only on paper, power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, and towns are often run by puppets. 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 14,700th in the world and 811th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,295.62 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
