The Soviet Socialist Union of Sorianora is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph Stalin II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.271 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moskva. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Soviet economy, worth a remarkable 1,723 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 403,536 Soviet Rubles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,415,905 per year while the poor average 83,428, a ratio of 17.0 to 1.

One year's corporation tax from three international megacorporations has funded one dozen shiny black pencils for Joseph Stalin II's office, the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, and tourists are denied entry because of a distant relative married to a Lilliputian. 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 40,550th in the world and 4th in Callista for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 16.97 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
