The Great Empire of The Holy Sun is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Alix Chang with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 1.869 billion Chinese 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 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 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Chinese economy, worth 256 trillion Renminbis a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 137,342 Renminbis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Soldiers must key in their passwords every time they want to reload their weapons, rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay, Chinese husbands are dead good at fathering kids, and knitting needles have been banned in the name of public safety. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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.

The Holy Sun is ranked 39,363rd in the world and 2,056th in The North Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 54.96 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
