The Sorycratic Entity of Sorya is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.336 billion Soryans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Industry, and Environment are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sorvathumpollydville. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Soryan economy, worth a remarkable 1,383 trillion Ollies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 188,610 Ollies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

It's never "just a game" with Soryan sports fans, the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, the freedom to be free is always just out of reach, and heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Ollie treacle machine. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sorya's national animal is the Platatocorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Sorya is ranked 102,469th in the world and 589th in 10000 Islands for Largest Black Market, with 152 billion Standard Monetary Units.
