The Eastern Card Tsar of Sorianora is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Joseph Stalin II with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, flagrant waste-dumping, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.903 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 aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Russia City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 83.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Soviet economy, worth 596 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 313,355 Soviet Rubles, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,214,101 per year while the poor average 55,430, a ratio of 21.9 to 1.

New pilots are regularly reminded that they are more expendable than their planes, the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, and advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines. 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 7,576th in the world and 4th in Callista for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 58.98 Whatever.
