The Seven Seas Kingdom of Sorentia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Hildian II with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed population of 3.453 billion Sorentians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sommnia. The average income tax rate is 59.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sorentian economy, worth 573 trillion Bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 165,943 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets, the new one Bitcoin coin also makes a handy throwing-star, artists are pillars of society, and large sections of Sorentia have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sorentia's national animal is the Frigate Bird, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Sorentia is ranked 198,816th in the world and 284th in Sonindia for Most Primitive, scoring -381.05 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
