Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Ever Victorious Empire of The Burning Sun is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Aleksander von Hohenburg with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.705 billion Burning Sunians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solemnace. The average income tax rate is 80.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient a Burning Sunian economy, worth a remarkable 2,293 trillion soulons a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 342,102 soulons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, the Grinder at Fat Sal's Deli and Recycling Center is a national institution, and the government is funneling billions into Cape The Burning Sun following the shuttle crash. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Burning Sun's national animal is the Automata, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Holy Inquisition.

The Burning Sun is ranked 23,707th in the world and 35th in Wintreath for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 5,515.81 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
