The Malicious Nation of New Sunville is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Zac F Brown with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.958 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 29.3%.

The frighteningly efficient New Sunvillean economy, worth a remarkable 1,990 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 199,913 gold coins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,147,013 per year while the poor average 16,775, a ratio of 68.4 to 1.

At the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold, heated town halls quickly descend into shootouts between politicians and their constituents, the government has to take out its Visa to eliminate visas, and a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Sunville's national animal is the cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

New Sunville is ranked 258,080th in the world and 182nd in The Brotherhood of Malice for Most Politically Free, scoring 11.43 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
