The Neutral Maritime Sunshine of Sunshop is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Our fairly elected leader Jerry Henrik with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.311 billion Sunnans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bobings Port. The average income tax rate is 81.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sunner economy, worth 113 trillion Roosuns a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. Average income is 86,459 Roosuns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most citizens in Sunshop are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government, surfing lessons include how to ward off sharks, contrails and thunderous rumbles have returned to the skies above, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sunshop's national animal is the Fossa, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sunne.

Sunshop is ranked 11,934th in the world and 20th in Eurth for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 9,854.52 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
