Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

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 free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.36 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 receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solemnace. The average income tax rate is 83.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient a Burning Sunian economy, worth a remarkable 2,164 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 340,339 soulons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

A girl's success in life is often linked to her performance in beauty pageants, the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, foreign governments are looking into weaponizing the infamous a Burning Sunian bee, and a cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country. 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 5,534th in the world and 19th in Wintreath for Smartest Citizens, with 105.01 Quips Per Hour.
