The Teikoku of White Sun is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Current Empress with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, public floggings, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 16.59 billion Sunese are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Administration aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiyonai. The average income tax rate is 30.2%.

The powerhouse Sunese economy, worth a remarkable 1,288 trillion Ryōs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 77,694 Ryōs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Sex offenders find themselves cut off from the ability to repeat their crimes, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, euthanasia is legal, and vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. White Sun's national animal is the Green pheasant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Shintō.

White Sun is ranked 44,080th in the world and 4th in Rostilian Puppet Storage for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 108.99 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
