The Republic of Sunset is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Erika Silaco with a fair hand, and renowned for its digital currency, pith helmet sales, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 38.18 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, liberal 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 79.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Nimatojin economy, worth an astonishing 19,489 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, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 510,458 DiCoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to CORE CyberGov to enjoy their national art, books are so highly regarded in Sunset that libraries are often revered as holy shrines, billion-DiCoin sentient AI killbots roll through the streets dispensing hot dogs and T-shirts, and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. 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 516th in the world and 3rd in The Vast for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 13,098.49 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
