The Second Empire of The Holy Sun is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Empress Alix Chang with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.73 billion Chinese enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beijing. The average income tax rate is 89.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Chinese economy, worth 230 trillion Renminbis a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 133,139 Renminbis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A National Academy regulates grammar and usage, every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, shoppers have literally had their hands full since plastic bags were banned, and armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Holy Sun's national animal is the imperial tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Confucianism.

The Holy Sun is ranked 115,685th in the world and 5,695th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -4.27 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
