The Sunborne Peoples of Hollowed Sun is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Alfred Von Hienlich with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, parental licensing program, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.096 billion Holians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sunborne Citadel. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Holian economy, worth 495 trillion Holian Kronons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 160,122 Holian Kronons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Hollowed Sun Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, and the nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hollowed Sun's national animal is the Dracolich, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hollowed Sun is ranked 15,513th in the world and 471st in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 80.26 on the Human Development Index.
