Solbency Island

Population212 million


The Republic of Solbency Island is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its public floggings, state-planned economy, and suspicion of poets. The democratic population of 212 million Solbencians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 47.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Solbencian economy, worth 10.1 trillion lire a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 47,459 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The rich tend their gardens inside gated urban farming communities, the government has been criticized for giving away Solbency Island's territory to anyone who claims it, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, and citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Solbency Island's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Solbency Island is ranked 52,141st in the world and 1,531st in The East Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 2.54 Bank.
