The Pirate nation of The Sunrise Island is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Captain Redbeard with an iron fist, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, compulsory military service, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 909 million Pirates 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Kaltaara. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.8%.

The frighteningly efficient a Pirate economy, worth 125 trillion Altins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 137,596 Altins, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

Merry Birthday is a popular protest song despite the risk of fines and royalty dues, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, when it comes to WMDs The Sunrise Island has declared that the only winning move is not to play, and every workday begins with group therapy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Sunrise Island's national animal is the Jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Sunrise Island is ranked 30,744th in the world and 1st in The Kaltaraa Pact for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 2,821.34 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
