The 😳😳😳 of SunnyPhiladelphia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Bonzu Pippinpaddleopsicopolis with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.767 billion Trash men live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

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 10.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Trash man economy, worth 548 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 145,693 Snails, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Selfie stick use is a required Scout badge, much of SunnyPhiladelphia's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems, and a shout of "stop in the name of the law!" is more of a request than an order. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. SunnyPhiladelphia's national animal is the Shrew Crew, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is DeVitoism.

SunnyPhiladelphia is ranked 182,617th in the world and 6,899th in Lazarus for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -6.32 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
