The Soviet Socialist Empire of Sorianora is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, smutty television, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 663 million Soviets are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Russia City. The average income tax rate is 40.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Sorianoran economy, worth 80.9 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 122,083 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Soviets any less frightened, flatulent people are left to die of cancer at the end of hospital waiting lists, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Sorianoran Liberator", and waste is frequently shipped to other countries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sorianora's national animal is the Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sorianora is ranked 152,149th in the world and 39th in Bluecrown Keep for Nudest, with 98.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
