The Kingdom of Sorgan is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by King Mirza II with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 10.925 billion Sorganians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nysara. The average income tax rate is 59%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, followed by Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing.

Builders spend more time negotiating "tasteful architecture" than on actual construction, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, bloodthirsty zealots regularly participate in the Friday Night Stoning of Adulterers, and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sorgan's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Islam, and its currency is the rial.

Sorgan is ranked 764th in Lazarus and 18,610th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 15 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
