The Hungry Sun is a primitive god whose worshipers regularly make human sacrifices to. They believe that, without feeding the sun humans "when it gets hungry", the sun may go out. It originated in a micronation in the Western Eastern Block, which would regularly raid nearby villages for sacrificial victims, but was later stamped out when the Circle intervened on behalf of the nearby villages, which had become prospective trade partners. This was the first major action of the Foreign Intervention Forces. The Hungry Sun was, for some time, worshiped in holdouts further to the West, where the Circle's influence hadn't spread to, but was wiped out completely by the Tallet.
