The Rogue Nation of West Sunrise is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Aydan Harry with a fair hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 5.732 billion West Sunriseans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neon Uikroefstin. The average income tax rate is 94.2%.

The frighteningly efficient West Sunrisean economy, worth 940 trillion Nova Silvers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 164,016 Nova Silvers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's soldiers often believe they're in the Air Force, party-lovers often change religions just for the weekend, there are no more heroes any more, and advanced mathematics books explain how two plus two equals five. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West Sunrise's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Creed Of Steel Falcon.

West Sunrise is ranked 11,132nd in the world and 13th in The Union of Democratic States for Highest Poor Incomes, with 98,011.24 Standard Monetary Units.
