The I cry of Sorianora is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph Stalin II with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.375 billion Soviets are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Russia City. The average income tax rate is 78.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Soviet economy, worth 321 trillion Soviet Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 233,607 Soviet Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign governments regularly accuse the Soviet military of war crimes, schoolkids say that the air doesn't taste like wee-wee any more, citizens who don't recite the Pledge of Sorianora at least three times a day are placed on a terrorist watch-list, and the masses are surrendering their civil liberties without complaint for the sake of shopping convenience. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sorianora's national animal is the Russian Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is State Secularism.

Sorianora is ranked 75,089th in the world and 17th in Callista for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 1,608.07 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
