The Kingdom of Thenationofthesun is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its frequent executions, infamous sell-swords, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 896 million Thenationofthesunians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Thenationofthesunian economy, worth 150 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 168,058 Pounds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 879,742 per year while the poor average 17,223, a ratio of 51.1 to 1.

A survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, proprietary charger leads are now a pain for electric cars as well as cellphones, only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, and prominent cultural symbols are featured on the backs of cereal boxes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Thenationofthesun's national animal is the Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Thenationofthesun is ranked 200,732nd in the world and 9,786th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 51.55 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
