The 😳😳😳 of SunnyPhiladelphia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Bonzu Pippinpaddleopsicopolis with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, sprawling nuclear power plants, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.29 billion Trash men hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oddlands. The average income tax rate is 8.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Trash man economy, worth 488 trillion Snails a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 148,458 Snails, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Becoming a missionary is a sure-fire route to martyrdom, citizens have reported seeing strange rays of light emanating from the moon, the nation's prisons are touted as the best weight loss programs money can't buy, and literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. SunnyPhiladelphia's national animal is the Non-suspicious Axolotl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is DeVitoism.

SunnyPhiladelphia is ranked 23,407th in the world and 1,023rd in Lazarus for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 6,012.77 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
