The Radiant Republic of Sunset Sea Islands is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Gao He Ping with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and national health service. The compassionate, cheerful population of 7.498 billion Sunset Sea Islandsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sunset City. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Sunset Sea Islandsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,614 trillion Sols a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 215,288 Sols, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, and weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sunset Sea Islands's national animal is the Hermit Crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Sunset Sea Islands is ranked 166,560th in the world and 83rd in Eurth for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -4.1 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
