The Soviet Socialist Union of Sorianora is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph Stalin II with an iron fist, and notable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.523 billion Soviets are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moskva. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Soviet economy, worth a remarkable 2,685 trillion Soviet Rubles a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 411,658 Soviet Rubles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,352,206 per year while the poor average 93,982, a ratio of 14.4 to 1.

When flight control tells pilots to alter course the usual reply is "No, YOU move!", officer recruitment and police brutality have reached an all-time high, Sorianora is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, and motorcycle riders are required to wear so much gear they've been nicknamed "Stay Pufts". 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 Russian Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is State Secularism.

Sorianora is ranked 146,412th in the world and 42nd in Callista for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 37,872.57 Standard Monetary Units.
