The Eastern Card Tsar of Sorianora is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Joseph Stalin II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, flagrant waste-dumping, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.873 billion Soviets are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Russia City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 83.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Soviet economy, worth 581 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, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 310,565 Soviet Rubles, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,176,045 per year while the poor average 56,997, a ratio of 20.6 to 1.

International trade can be a pain to deal with, vital intelligence-gathering activities are often put on hold for Call of Honor tournaments, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, and the Sorianora Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise. 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 244,275th in the world and 62nd in Callista for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2.18 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
