The United Republic of Sunemia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chris Fairfax with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.3 billion Sunemians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nashai. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Sunemian economy, worth 936 trillion auralas a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 148,719 auralas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Posters on 'Sunemian Values' advise against being proud of Sunemia, citizens select which government department gets their income tax auralas each year, S-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, and excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Sunemia's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sunemia is ranked 6,127th in the world and 17th in International Democratic Union for Smartest Citizens, with 117.77 quips per hour.
