The Rising Empire of Sunaiya is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Zakiron Tsune with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 4.428 billion Sunaiyans 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 enormous, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haikyapitaru. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Sunaiyan economy, worth 782 trillion Aiankoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 176,758 Aiankoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Graffiti graces every city's streets, minefields are being deployed along the border to discourage potential emigrants from trying to leave, the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, and prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sunaiya's national animal is the Sunaiyan Catfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is The Kuriētāsupirittsu.

Sunaiya is ranked 3,775th in the world and 173rd in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 18,593.59 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
