The Federal Republic of The island of Sorna is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Turtle with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working population of 1.446 billion The island of Sornas have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Turtle City. The average income tax rate is 32.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving island of Sorna economy, worth 122 trillion convertable marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,896 convertable marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Psychiatrists that date patients are congratulated on their romantic conquests, the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, and pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The island of Sorna's national animal is the turtle, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans, and its national religion is Turtles.

The island of Sorna is ranked 78,074th in the world and 3,404th in the South Pacific for Most Secular, with 18.36 Atheism Rate.
