The Federal Republic of Sorlovia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Artyom Maksimov with a fair hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 8.01 billion Sorlovians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tarchenko. The average income tax rate is 77.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sorlovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,297 trillion Sorlovian Roubles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 161,950 Sorlovian Roubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Theories abound over why conspiracy theorists are being arrested, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", statistics show that terrorists often come from broken families, and the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Sorlovia's national animal is the Sorlovian Brown Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sorlovian Orthodoxy.

Sorlovia is ranked 69,645th in the world and 21st in Esportiva for Most Income Equality, scoring 38.08 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
