The Rising Empire of Sunaiya is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Empress Kasumi Tsune with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, lack of airports, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 6.049 billion Sunaiyans 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 enormous, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Education, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid and Public Transport are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haikyapitaru. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Sunaiyan economy, worth a remarkable 1,188 trillion Aiankoins a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 196,404 Aiankoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government keeps its thumb on the scales of justice, every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, movie references are legally admissible in court, and a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sunaiya's national animal is the Sunaiyan Catfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is The Kuriētāsupirittsu.

Sunaiya is ranked 3,650th in the world and 205th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 95.31 on the Human Development Index.
