The Soviet Socialist Union of Sorianora is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph Stalin II with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, strictly enforced bedtime, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.498 billion Soviets are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy 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 79.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Soviet economy, worth 872 trillion Soviet Rubles a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 349,277 Soviet Rubles, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,990,348 per year while the poor average 29,772, a ratio of 66.9 to 1.

The government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, the nation is known abroad for fast food and nothing else, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', and hedge fund managers are diversifying into herbaceous borders. 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 204,776th in the world and 69th in Callista for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -8.94 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
