The Retired Card Collector of New Sunville is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Zac F Brown with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, vat-grown people, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.045 billion Sunvilleans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Sunville City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.0%.

The frighteningly efficient New Sunvillean economy, worth a remarkable 1,187 trillion gold coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 196,520 gold coins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,141,251 per year while the poor average 16,034, a ratio of 71.2 to 1.

Half-submerged and flooded seaside hotels are technically still next to the beach, it's best to decline if Zac F Brown offers to buy a round of drinks, lip-readers are often left perplexed by political rallies, and it is technically inaccurate to call the dead 'worm food'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Sunville's national animal is the basilisk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

New Sunville is ranked 20,556th in the world and 1st in Resting Place for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 7,040.56 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
