The Principality of Sorra and Olrisa is a small, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic, devout population of 29 million Equestrians 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The basket case Equestrian economy, worth 333 billion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 11,513 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The true length of the coastline of Sorra and Olrisa may never be measured, a shipwreck is everyone's fault but the captain's, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, and citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sorra and Olrisa's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sorra and Olrisa is ranked 43,419th in the world and 33rd in Equestria for Best Weather, with 115 Meters Of Sunlight.
