The Free Land of Sorwickshire is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.475 billion Sorwickshireans 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 large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sorwickshirean economy, worth 185 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 126,083 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It takes a village to catch a criminal, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, the nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event, and therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sorwickshire's national animal is the robin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sorwickshire is ranked 3,967th in the world and 59th in The Leftist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.43 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
