The KickAss Corrections Officers of SORT is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its public floggings, national health service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.656 billion SORTans 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Florence. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient SORTan economy, worth a remarkable 1,262 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,284 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 204,887th in the world and 9,070th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -11.66 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
