United Sunrise Communes

Population182 million


The Commonwealth of United Sunrise Communes is a very large, socially progressive nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 182 million Sunriseans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 61.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Sunrisean economy, worth 7.25 trillion communards a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is 39,860 communards, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Board shorts have replaced board rooms, moonshine has made a resurgence, tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, and citizens are grown in vats. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Sunrise Communes's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

United Sunrise Communes is ranked 24,801st in the world and 776th in The East Pacific for Most Secular, with 40.82 Atheism Rate.
