The Commonwealth of Sonnydesh is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Milan Ahmed with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.388 billion Deshians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 78.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sonnydeshian economy, worth 728 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 114,091 rahats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, and former state leaders include a TV comic and a cowboy actor. 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 73,062nd in the world and 2,252nd in Osiris for Most Politically Free, scoring 71.14 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
