The Glories Old of Sunrise Trail is a colossal, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 8.187 billion Sunrise Trailers are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bluenose. The average income tax rate is 73.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Sunrise Trailian economy, worth 358 trillion Nickels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 43,742 Nickels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, anti-vaxxers are right about the government injecting diseases into people, the weather in Bluenose is always 'pigeons with a chance of droppings', and judges are all-powerful. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sunrise Trail's national animal is the Jellyfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Rationalist.

Sunrise Trail is ranked 247,239th in the world and 57th in Philosophers for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -9.65 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
