The Republic of TotallyNotSulen is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and daily referendums. The compassionate, devout population of 471 million TotallyNotSulenians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government prioritizes Law & Order, although Defense, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Environment aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse TotallyNotSulenian economy, worth 25.7 trillion kronor a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Gambling, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 54,599 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, citizens who don't attend the nation's massive military parades tend to disappear overnight, homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them, and autopsies often involve only cursory examination. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. TotallyNotSulen's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

TotallyNotSulen is ranked 190,487th in the world and 158th in Shinka for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -7.94 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
