The Sea Kingdom of Soreka is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Nina Valkshire with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.779 billion Sorekans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Althum Lorien. The average income tax rate is 69.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Sorekan economy, worth a remarkable 1,718 trillion Barks a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 159,399 Barks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

The new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, the government has pinkie-promised never to use its veto power except in an emergency, society and government have been organized according to a feudal hierarchy, and the statue in the Yoo Plaza has a solar panel for a hat. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Soreka's national animal is the Daera, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Nine Faiths.

Soreka is ranked 76,737th in the world and 6th in Oblitus Realm for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 2,016.62 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
