The People's Republic of Sordhau is a massive, safe nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.793 billion Sordhauer are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yarsengærd. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Sordhauer economy, worth 67.8 trillion Sordhauer Marcs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 37,812 Sordhauer Marcs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

A determined opposition debates the relative benefits of Arial and Times New Roman for days on end, emojis are the soul of wit, the aims of top-secret Sordhauer science projects revolve around designing the perfect robot woman, and town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sordhau's national animal is the Sordic Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Loeva.

Sordhau is ranked 155,526th in the world and 6,444th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 53.63 on the Human Development Index.
