The Radiant Republic of Sunset Sea Islands is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Gao He Ping with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, cheerful population of 5.92 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 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Sunset Sea Islandsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,268 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 214,225 Sols, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Contestants on Sunset Sea Islands's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent, a government program is underway to revitalize Sunset Sea Islands's beaches, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Sunset City to enjoy their national art. 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 4,519th in the world and 8th in Eurth for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 16,924.21 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
