The Galactic Sector of Grand Republic of the Sun is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The Shine Minister with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and digital currency. The quiet, industrious population of 1.321 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taeyang. The average income tax rate is 57.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sunian economy, worth 171 trillion beamcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 129,606 beamcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, third world countries are rich in "I Love Taeyang" t-shirts, private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, and prisoners work-share to cut down rising costs of keeping them in jail. 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 139,437th in the world and 3,606th in the West Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,008.09 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
