The Island of Sorna

CurrencySornian Mark

The Centrist Republic of The Island of Sorna is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Aleksandar Radoslav with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 3.806 billion Sornians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rumija. The average income tax rate is 67.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Sornian economy, worth 521 trillion Sornian Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 136,929 Sornian Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Meteorologists warn of fog just past 4pm daily, rumour has it Aleksandar Radoslav needs a calculator to multiply ten by ten, a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an Air Brancaland flight has been offered asylum, and the stratosphere is full of "silent but deadly" attacks from Aleksandar Radoslav's rear echelons. 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 17,883rd in the world and 544th in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 66.9 quips per hour.
