The Eastern Card Tsar of Sorianora is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Joseph Stalin II with an iron fist, and renowned for its disturbing lack of elderly people, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. 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 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 84.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Soviet economy, worth 598 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 312,442 Soviet Rubles, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,256,657 per year while the poor average 51,987, a ratio of 24.2 to 1.

A National Academy regulates grammar and usage, imprisonment is the leading cause of disownment, dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, and it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations. 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 169,040th in the world and 47th in Callista for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring zero on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
