The Militarized Territories of Sorkova is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Supreme Commander Thorn with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, infamous sell-swords, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.545 billion Sorkovans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Summit. The average income tax rate is 52.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sorkovan economy, worth 335 trillion Sorkovan credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 132,000 Sorkovan credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, and most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sorkova's national animal is the Red-tailed Hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sorkova is ranked 251,770th in the world and 19th in Odrya for Most Politically Free, scoring 24.57 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
