The Dominion of Solek is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Immortal Emperor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.156 billion Solekians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Savareen. The average income tax rate is 49.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Solekian economy, worth 144 trillion Zunoes 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 large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. 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 66,953 Zunoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Solek is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, some say The Immortal Emperor has gone MAD after authorizing the development of apocalyptic biological weapons, they who do not work shall not eat, and the needs of the living outweigh the needs of the dead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Solek's national animal is the Red Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kyratism.

Solek is ranked 58,424th in the world and 1,826th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 2,695.09 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
