The Republic of Sunset is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Erika Silaco with a fair hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, digital currency, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 36.58 billion Nimatojin hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CORE CyberGov. The average income tax rate is 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nimatojin economy, worth an astonishing 18,285 trillion DiCoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 499,880 DiCoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. Crime is totally unknown. Sunset's national animal is the Kasei Taigā, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Amalgamation of Disparate Faiths.

Sunset is ranked 36,218th in the world and 5th in The Vast for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 72.05 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
