The Sorycratic Entity of Sorya is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.426 billion Soryans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Environment, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sorvathumpollydville. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Soryan economy, worth a remarkable 1,795 trillion Ollies 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 and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 190,468 Ollies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Turning the other cheek is accompanied by a polite letter of complaint, unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, and frat-house partying has become the national pastime. 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 201,991st in the world and 2,018th in 10000 Islands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -14.76 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
