The Island of Sorchamei is a huge, genial nation, ruled by President Sorvana with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 920 million Blue Sorchies enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Torestoros Maine. The average income tax rate is 80.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sorchameian economy, worth 92.8 trillion Sorchas a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 100,871 Sorchas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, President Sorvana is described as an everyday person with normal tastes and the usual interests, and voting is compulsory. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sorchamei's national animal is the Teton Valais Blacknose Sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sorchamei is ranked 7,528th in the world and 137th in 10000 Islands for Most Pacifist, with 146.43 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
