The Republic of Sunset is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Erika Silaco with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, national health service, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 42.241 billion Nimatojin hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CORE CyberGov. The average income tax rate is 90.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Nimatojin economy, worth an astonishing 21,841 trillion DiCoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 517,070 DiCoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Tours to see the 'wild men of the mountains' are popular with tourists from the big cities, kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Sunset, and preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance. Crime is totally unknown. Sunset's national animal is the Kasei Taigā, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sunset is ranked 338th in the world and 3rd in The Vast for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 101.64 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
