The Radiant Republic of Sunset Sea Islands is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Theresa Tumbleweed with an even hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, digital currency, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, cheerful population of 5.031 billion Sunset Sea Islandsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sunset City. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Sunset Sea Islandsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,015 trillion Sols a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 201,867 Sols, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, the government is spending millions on alternative clean-burning fuels, burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony, and old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sunset Sea Islands's national animal is the Hermit Crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Sunset Sea Islands is ranked 86,369th in the world and 50th in Eurth for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.19 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
