United Sunrise Communes

Population350 million


The Commonwealth of United Sunrise Communes is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its vat-grown people, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 350 million Sunriseans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 61.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Sunrisean economy, worth 14.0 trillion communards a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is 39,860 communards, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Board shorts have replaced board rooms, moonshine has made a resurgence, tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, and citizens are grown in vats. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Sunrise Communes's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

United Sunrise Communes is ranked 60,294th in the world and 2,160th in The East Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 64.91 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
