The Republic of Sundowning is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 548 million Sundowners live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 7.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Sundowningian economy, worth 43.0 trillion tahls a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is 78,545 tahls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
Inheritance tax has recently been abolished, a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Sundowningian politicians, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, and authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Sundowning's national animal is the raven, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
