The Galactic Sector of Grand Republic of the Sun is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by The Shine Minister with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 5.528 billion Sunians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taeyang. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sunian economy, worth 780 trillion beamcoins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,235 beamcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government ministers have eclectic tastes in curtains, citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, the study of medicine is popular throughout Grand Republic of the Sun, and elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grand Republic of the Sun's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Grand Republic of the Sun is ranked 181,243rd in the world and 4,910th in the West Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3,619.94 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
