The Free Land of Sunny Bum is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 1.152 billion Sunny Bumians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 63.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Sunny Bumian economy, worth 58.2 trillion Bums a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,546 Bums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
The Sunny Bumian basket weaving sector is on the brink of collapse as cheap imports flood the market, life expectancies inside correctional facilities vastly exceed the national average, victims of crime are viewed as less trustworthy than politicians, and major boxing matches are held in government buildings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sunny Bum's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
