Solís (often misspelled Solis) is the fictional country in which Just Cause 4 will take place.
More info will be provided as soon as it is available, but right now, it is known as the home of the Black Hand.
See the video below for an official introduction of the nation.
It is unknown who leads the country, but it has been mentioned to be the home of the Black Hand and since no non-BH military (or police) have been shown, it's fair to assume that the nation is ruled by the Black Hand. However this is still speculation and we'll likely hear more about it over the coming months.
Economy and industry
In one of the official videos it was stated that if you live in Solís, you're either training to become a soldier, or you're working at a factory. This would obviously be a bit of an exaggeration, but it suggests that Solís is heavily industrialized and has a "military first"-policy, similar to North Korea.
Having few lakes and rivers, Solís relies more on its roads and railroads than any of the previously featured nations. Solís is also known to have a few airports, with at least one large international airport. There is also a big interstate seen in the grasslands
Geography and climate zones
Solís has 4 climate zones (jungle, desert, grassland & mountains), similar to Panau and each of those is said to have 2 to 4 distinct sub-areas that define the cross-overs zones between the main areas.
According to a developer video, the highest natural point in Solís is 2461 meters above sea level.
One location in the desert area has a giant smoking crater. It's unknown if this was caused by a geologic, or celestial event.
These are seen on the game map in some pre-launch gameplay videos. Occasionally a part of the map is visible, just before someone calls anything from the Supply drop.

The Black Hand have control of the weather, as they are known to create controlled tornadoes. The dynamic weather also has other types of storms for other biomes. The grasslands biome has tornadoes; the alpine biome has blizzards; the rain forest biome has thunderstorms; and the desert biome will have sandstorms.
Natural weather will be completely functional for the first time, not just in the different storms. Rivers will have currents and the atmosphere will have winds. These effect the handling of boats, the wingsuit and possibly other aircraft.
- In the mission The Heist Begins for Just Cause 3's Bavarium Sea Heist DLC, a fleet of Black Hand ships attempts to intercept Rico, Tom Sheldon, Annika Svennson, and Looch as they are making their escape from the eDEN Corporation's Stingray facility. As soon as the ships come into sight Annika immediately blames Sheldon for providing the team with "bad" intel on the Black Hand's forces. Sheldon is surprised too because he believed the ships were supposed to be on their way to South America.
- There's a possibility that Annika and Sheldon had been referring to Solís in that instance, but this has yet to be denied or confirmed.
- Solís appears to be the first country in the Just Cause Game Series to lack an official standing military, as the Black Hand are the only faction seen. However, this is the homeland of the Black Hand, so it's implied that they rule that nation.
- Sol means sun in Latin, Spanish, Portuguese, Swedish, and Norwegian.
