The Holy Lucky Brown Egg Empire of SunnyPhiladelphia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Deric DevAndre with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.653 billion Trash men enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trash Island. The average income tax rate is 7.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Trash man economy, worth 203 trillion gold eggs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 122,941 gold eggs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Monocled merchants with funny accents are applying for Trash man citizenship in droves, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative', and Deric DevAndre's recent "I have a dream that we will fight them by raking muck on the beaches" speech seems a little derivative to many. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. SunnyPhiladelphia's national animal is the BIRD UP The Worst Show on Television, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is DeVitoism.

SunnyPhiladelphia is ranked 53,072nd in the world and 2,148th in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,621 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
