The Galactic Solar Empire of The Republic of Western Sol is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme leader G3U-GTU with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, enslaved workforce, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.538 billion West solarians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Osmarch. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Republic of Western Solian economy, worth 330 trillion Catuns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 214,613 Catuns, with the richest citizens earning 7.2 times as much as the poorest.

Stoogery and pratfalls are about as scathingly clever as Republic of Western Solian humor gets, poaching has been on the rise after animals from the nation's zoos were released into the wild, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, and prodigal children celebrate as charitable bequests plummet. Crime is totally unknown. The Republic of Western Sol's national animal is the Solarian bombardier beetle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The scientific method.

The Republic of Western Sol is ranked 252,651st in the world and 1,461st in 10000 Islands for Least Corrupt Governments, with 30.44 percentage of bribes refused.
