The Eternal Sindar Enmpire of Soronume is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Navras Issil Duren with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 24.999 billion Soronumeans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Soronume City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 88.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Soronumean economy, worth a remarkable 2,920 trillion Soronumens a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 116,827 Soronumens, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 335,921 per year while the poor average 32,290, a ratio of 10.4 to 1.

The statue in the Adams Plaza has a solar panel for a hat, the government is in utter turmoil following the recent abolishment of the tax code, country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, and pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Soronume's national animal is the Western Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Soronumism.

Soronume is ranked 65,390th in the world and 2nd in Earth Prime for Most Politically Free, scoring 74 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
