The Holy Callistan Tsar of Sorianora is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph Stalin II with an iron fist, and notable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, vat-grown people, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.356 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, although Law & Order, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality 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 77.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Soviet economy, worth 310 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, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Automobile Manufacturing. 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 228,940 Soviet Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, state dairy cow's milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets, the police use sound cannons and mortars to deal with loud parties, and Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sorianora's national animal is the Русский медведь, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is State Secularism.

Sorianora is ranked 84,742nd in the world and 28th in Callista for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 2,103.25 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
