The Solus

Population251 million

The Empire of The Solus is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory vegetarianism, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 251 million Solusians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 61.5%.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Solusian economy, worth 6.66 trillion Solusian Coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 26,550 Solusian Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Only lightning has a chance of striking Leader twice, children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name, black tea is only available on the black market, and homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Solus's national animal is the Solusian Silver Bobcat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Solus is ranked 134,973rd in the world and 837th in 10000 Islands for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 665.72 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
