The KickAss Corrections Officers of SORT is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its closed borders, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.895 billion SORTans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Florence. The average income tax rate is 92.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient SORTan economy, worth a remarkable 1,258 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,806 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government has become increasingly militant, the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists, new "Commiserations! It's An Accident!" greetings cards for expectant mothers are selling surprisingly quickly, and putting a mustache on a banknote is considered defacing a national monument. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SORT's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

SORT is ranked 213,478th in the world and 9,621st in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -239.59 on the Hayek Index.
