The Republic of Sunset is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Erika Silaco with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 36.585 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 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 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nimatojin economy, worth an astonishing 18,288 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, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 499,880 DiCoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. Crime is totally unknown. Sunset's national animal is the Kasei Taigā, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Amalgamation of Disparate Faiths.

Sunset is ranked 15,934th in the world and 3rd in The Vast for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
