The Commonwealth of Sorlyset is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Esus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, digital currency, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.494 billion Sorlysetians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buenos Aires. The average income tax rate is 51.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sorlysetian economy, worth a remarkable 1,158 trillion Franqs a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,426 Franqs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Visitors often mistake the toiletplex at music festivals for the main stage, the nation's air missiles have killed thousands of Brasilistan military personnel, legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, and foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Sorlyset's national animal is the Pampas Rabbit, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Nou Cathar.

Sorlyset is ranked 232,662nd in the world and 75th in Geopolity for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 21.09 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
