The Commonwealth of Sonnydesh is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Milan Ahmed with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.954 billion Deshians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lenton. The average income tax rate is 78.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sonnydeshian economy, worth 564 trillion rahats a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 113,871 rahats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, selfie stick use is a required Scout badge, funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, and parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sonnydesh's national animal is the Imperial Liger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sonnydesh is ranked 86,341st in the world and 3,212th in Osiris for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 2,244.55 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
