The Eastern Card Tsar of Sorianora is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph Stalin II with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.915 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, although Law & Order, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Russia City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 84.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Soviet economy, worth 599 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 312,847 Soviet Rubles, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,235,992 per year while the poor average 53,611, a ratio of 23.1 to 1.

Every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, foreign policy often involves bullwhips and leather, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, and imprisonment is the leading cause of disownment. 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 168,967th in the world and 47th in Callista for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring zero on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
