The Republic of Sunset is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Erika Silaco with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, otherworldly petting zoo, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 46.534 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 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nimatojin economy, worth an astonishing 24,182 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 519,669 DiCoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

College students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, physics lessons mostly involve talking about emotional management techniques, the only movement outdoors is of ramen-delivery drones, and foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security. 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 11th in the world and 1st in The Vast for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 2,396.73 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
