The Red holy Socialist Zombie of Sorianora is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Joseph Stalin II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.033 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, although Law & Order, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Russia City. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Sorianoran economy, worth 197 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 Automobile Manufacturing. 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 impressive 191,007 Soviet Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists, the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, sprinters achieve their personal bests only when the Olympic Team recruiters come calling, and ponies are brutally murdered before being left to rot (Sorianora has found 4 easter eggs). 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 Русский медведь, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secularism.

Sorianora is ranked 212,949th in the world and 122nd in Bluecrown Keep for Safest, scoring 13.39 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
