The Arceusian Republic of Northern Sunrise Islands is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Eric Fahrenheit with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, public floggings, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 10.815 billion Northern Sunrisians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mardi. The average income tax rate is 69.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Northern Sunrisian economy, worth 777 trillion Islander Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is 71,923 Islander Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The army lures cannon fodder with promises of a college education, every workday begins with group therapy, almost all the visible space on TV screens is taken up by advertising, and sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern Sunrise Islands's national animal is the Vaporeon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Arceusism.

Northern Sunrise Islands is ranked 63,887th in the world and 41st in Esportiva for Most Income Equality, scoring 41.26 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
