The Republic of Sunset is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Erika Silaco with a fair hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, pith helmet sales, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 45.155 billion Nimatojin hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CORE CyberGov. The average income tax rate is 90.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Nimatojin economy, worth an astonishing 23,449 trillion DiCoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 519,321 DiCoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, anti-government web sites are springing up, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', and the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans. Crime is totally unknown. Sunset's national animal is the Kasei Taigā, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sunset is ranked 1,155th in the world and 5th in The Vast for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 14,179.31 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
