The Empire of The Awakening Sun is a small, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 32 million Awakening Sunians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 53.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Awakening Sunian economy, worth 1.52 trillion Baronian Chips a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 47,536 Baronian Chips, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, camera crews have accompanied conscripted dancers to film 'Marching On Ice', many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators, and the bum of Leader has been voted the most recognisable in The Awakening Sun. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Awakening Sun's national animal is the Varan.

The Awakening Sun is ranked 52,655th in the world and 5th in KaijuCord for Most Patriotic, with 18.77 flags saluted per person per day.
