The Federal Republic of The island of Sorna is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Josip Milorad Dragoslav with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.584 billion Sornians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Turtle City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Sornian economy, worth 334 trillion Sornian Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 129,301 Sornian Marks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 895,470 per year while the poor average 6,561, a ratio of 136 to 1.

Fruit market traders let their stock spoil rather than reduce their prices at the day's end, flash floods that dams could have controlled regularly ravage small towns in mountain valleys, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, and The island of Sorna is increasingly belligerent on the international stage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The island of Sorna's national animal is the turtle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Islam.

The island of Sorna is ranked 29,760th in the world and 1,351st in the South Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 4,178.28 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
