The Theocracy of Mournsora is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Most Supreme and Beloved of Sora with an even hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, complete lack of prisons, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 12.208 billion Mournsorans 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Holy City of Mournsora. The average income tax rate is 68.3%.

The all-consuming Mournsoran economy, worth a remarkable 2,495 trillion Soras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 204,379 Soras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government loves seeing the little people fight, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, and they who do not work shall not eat. Crime is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Mournsora's national animal is the Ox, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Eternal Mourning of Sora.

Mournsora is ranked 141,794th in the world and 5,402nd in the South Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 626.14 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
