The Democratic People's Republic of Solhstan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by General Secretary Yahya Parvande with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.336 billion Solhstanis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Balatarabad. The average income tax rate is 63.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Solhstani economy, worth 61.3 trillion dinars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 18,380 dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, General Secretary Yahya Parvande's family members carry literal get-out-of-jail-free cards, it's surprisingly hard to find pictures of the bad haircuts from General Secretary Yahya Parvande's childhood, and citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Solhstan. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Solhstan's national animal is the snow leopard and its national religion is state atheism.

Solhstan is ranked 232,277th in the world and 47th in Genua for Most Developed, scoring 45.68 on the Human Development Index.
