The Commonwealth of Sonnydesh is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Milan Ahmed with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.289 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 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sonnydeshian economy, worth 371 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 112,907 rahats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The morbidly obese often sell stock options on their own corpses, the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit, and passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections. 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 79,253rd in the world and 3,232nd in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,280.58 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
