The Holy Gold Callistan Tsar of Sorianora is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph Stalin II with an iron fist, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.629 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, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Russia City. The average income tax rate is 83.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Soviet economy, worth 441 trillion Soviet Rubles 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, 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 amazing 271,001 Soviet Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It takes a village to catch a criminal, citizens with artificial limbs are forbidden to serve as beauty pageant judges, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, and political loyalty is enforced by way of chemical addiction. 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 238,923rd in the world and 57th in Callista for Least Corrupt Governments, with 9.16 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
