The Indie Sensation of Northern Sunrise Islands is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Sunrise the Trainer with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ritual sacrifices, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 13.118 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nowhere in Particular. The average income tax rate is 74.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Northern Sunrisian economy, worth 900 trillion Sonic Adventure emblems a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. Average income is 68,628 Sonic Adventure emblems, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government is spending millions on lawyers' fees trying to get Sunrise the Trainer 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 the all-pervasive 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 64,205th in the world and 103rd in Spiritus for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 66.31 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
