The Empire of The Holy Sun is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Alix Chang with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.565 billion Chinese 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beijing. The average income tax rate is 87.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Chinese economy, worth 202 trillion Renminbis a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,232 Renminbis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Children are terrified that the 'flying police monster' will come to take them away in the night, restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in The Holy Sun, the nation was recently voted "most likely to betray its allies", and the government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Holy Sun's national animal is the imperial tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Confucianism and Taoism.

The Holy Sun is ranked 10,156th in the world and 552nd in The North Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 13.01 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
