The Kingdom of Great Soria is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 593 million Great Sorians 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 relatively small government prioritizes Spirituality, although Education and Welfare are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. The average income tax rate is 14.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Great Sorian economy, worth 33.8 trillion Sorian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 56,926 Sorian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Most pop videos prominently feature the Great Sorian flag, the Great Sorian Intelligence Agency has put 'Project Quantum Refrigerator' on hold indefinitely, homophobia is off the menu, and students and teachers are regularly stopped and searched for symbols of religious affiliation before class. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Great Soria's national animal is the Sorian Polar Bear, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Great Soria is ranked 103,423rd in the world and 2nd in North Polia for Fattest Citizens, with 11.25 Obesity Rate.
