The Queen's State of SunChilde is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Governor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 27.219 billion SunChildeans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.0%.

The thriving SunChildean economy, worth a remarkable 1,210 trillion betales a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Average income is 44,472 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 284,979 per year while the poor average 2,832, a ratio of 100 to 1.

The SunChilde Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, any machine that shows any glimmer of intelligence is scrapped for parts, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, and retail stores are known for creating their own oddly-similar holidays in the months preceding any major festivity. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. SunChilde's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

SunChilde is ranked 66,910th in the world and 3rd in South Dakota for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 2,222.62 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
