The Arceusian Republic of Northern Sunrise Islands is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Eric Fahrenheit with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 11.328 billion Northern Sunrisians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Northern Sunrisian economy, worth 793 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 significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is 70,046 Islander Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government is spending millions on lawyers' fees trying to get Eric Fahrenheit off a murder charge, former arsonists can be found on local fire brigades, politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing, and stylish juvenile delinquents are highly overrepresented in fatal motorcycle accidents. 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 118,399th in the world and 94th in Rushmore for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 23.06 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
