The Grand Empire of The Sunrise Island is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Bill VI the Wise with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.383 billion Japanese people are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of MegaTokyo. The average income tax rate is 75.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Japanese economy, worth 198 trillion Yen a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 143,173 Yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The leaders of The Sunrise Island are given the nod by their predecessors, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, foreign leaders who don't applaud Emperor Bill VI the Wise's speeches are regarded as enemies of The Sunrise Island, and Emperor Bill VI the Wise is too busy listening to praise to get any work done. 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 Crane, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shinto.

The Sunrise Island is ranked 117,056th in the world and 5th in The Kaltaara Pact for Safest, scoring 55.9 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
