The Free Land of Sunterion is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Everett Pearce with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.715 billion Sunterionians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taevan City. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Sunterionian economy, worth 351 trillion sunters a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 74,581 sunters, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Airplane passenger seat sizes and ticket prices are both first-class, the country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, and minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sunterion's national animal is the badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sunterion is ranked 64,662nd in the world and 3,210th in Lazarus for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
