The Rising Empire of Sunaiya is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Zakiron Tsune with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, triple-decker prams, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 4.092 billion Sunaiyans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid and Public Transport receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haikyapitaru. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Sunaiyan economy, worth 697 trillion Aiankoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 170,336 Aiankoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, the government's approval ratings go down while its turnover rate goes up, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, and explicit slash fiction is repackaged for kindergarten kids as stories about friends cuddling friends. 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 2,943rd in the world and 175th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.48 Years.
