The Not so much Grumpy Colony of Sunto is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Larry Tostada with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ban on automobiles, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.73 billion Suntoniatas 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 large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Muahaha. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Suntoniano economy, worth a remarkable 2,269 trillion bols a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 233,294 bols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll. Crime is totally unknown. Sunto's national animal is the uro, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lol a Lot.

Sunto is ranked 206,910th in the world and 10,044th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -26.46 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
