The Ever Victorious Empire of The Burning Sun is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Aleksander von Hohenburg with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.459 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, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solemnace. The average income tax rate is 88.8%.

The frighteningly efficient a Burning Sunian economy, worth a remarkable 2,601 trillion soulons a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an amazing 348,760 soulons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

A third of Burning Sunians are e-certified CEOs, historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, the government provides its citizenry with the same mass produced rations, and the new classical revitalization of Solemnace is expected to be completed sometime in the next century. 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 166,797th in the world and 5,084th in Balder for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -9.7 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
