The Democratic Republic of Farro-Sorn is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by William Sanders with an even hand, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, ubiquitous missile silos, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 1.815 billion Farro-Sornians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 33.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Farro-Sornian economy, worth 106 trillion Quants a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 58,724 Quants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Farro-Sornians are fixin' ta comma any way they wanna, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, homeless people are periodically found dead upon altars to assorted deities, and citizens complain about a burning sensation after bathing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Farro-Sorn's national animal is the Eganonent, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Oogwayism.

Farro-Sorn is ranked 65,573rd in the world and 38th in Northern Utopia for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,042.56 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
