The Kingdom of Sundorlande is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its fear of technology, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 745 million Sundorlandeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baelfawst. The average income tax rate is 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Sundorlandean economy, worth 23.0 trillion pennings 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 Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery and Trout Farming. Average income is 30,899 pennings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, diplomatic cables about Leader have suddenly been very flattering, all beauty contests have been banned, and prisoners regularly escape detention posing as scarecrows. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sundorlande's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sundorlande is ranked 41,107th in the world and 1,970th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 3,721.88 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
