The Republic of Sunset is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Erika Silaco with a fair hand, and renowned for its digital currency, vat-grown people, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 39.971 billion Nimatojin hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CORE CyberGov. The average income tax rate is 85.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nimatojin economy, worth an astonishing 20,552 trillion DiCoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 514,176 DiCoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Edutainment video games are taking Sunset's students to the next level, it turns out that money can buy you happiness, even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, and Erika Silaco can be seen doing doughnuts in a new Rambogini. Crime is totally unknown. Sunset's national animal is the Kasei Taigā, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sunset is ranked 143,769th in the world and 5th in The Vast for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.73 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
