The Danny DeVito Dominion of SunnyPhiladelphia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King DeDeDeVito with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, strictly enforced bedtime, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.271 billion Trash men hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Philly. The average income tax rate is 7.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Trash man economy, worth 476 trillion gold eggs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 145,660 gold eggs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

One can walk from one side of Philly to the other without setting foot on Trash man soil, Trash man farm salmon are known for being both horribly diseased and remarkably acrobatic, doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality, and the nation's gold reserves are said to be somewhere over the rainbow (SunnyPhiladelphia has found 2 easter eggs). Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. SunnyPhiladelphia's national animal is the Man Cheetah, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is DeVitoism.

SunnyPhiladelphia is ranked 188,327th in the world and 1,957th in 10000 Islands for Least Corrupt Governments, with 85.7 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
