The Indie Sensation of Northern Sunrise Islands is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sunrise the Trainer with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, public floggings, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 13.674 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 74.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Northern Sunrisian economy, worth 960 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 led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is 70,252 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 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 51,053rd in the world and 83rd in Spiritus for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 67.13 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
