The Radiant Republic of Sunset Sea Islands is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Gao He Ping with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 5.949 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 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Sunset Sea Islandsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,276 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 214,492 Sols, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', escalators are avoided at all costs, the nation's government buildings are remarkable for being ugly concrete boxes, and the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes. 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 3,065th in the world and 6th in Eurth for Most Cultured, scoring 186 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
