The Commonwealth of Sorrial is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 958 million Sorrialians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.6%.

The all-consuming Sorrialian economy, worth 91.4 trillion dollops a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 95,434 dollops, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Newly-peaceful nations are forced to use assault rifles as farming tools due to a lack of funds for purchasing anything else, the children of Sorrial are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, and artists are pillars of society. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sorrial's national animal is the Cat, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Sorrial is ranked 15,904th in the world and 42nd in The Free Nations Region for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 6,956.39 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
