Sorrenia is officially a Roman Catholic country, with the Papal Directorate explicitly established to pass legally binding ecclesiastic rulings. Despite this, only a quarter of Sorrenians are Catholic, with the plurality (41%) being members of the Church of England. Several Anglicans expressed worry upon the government's ruling to reconvert the various Cathedrals in Sorrenia to Catholicism.
Various other Christian denominations also exist, the largest being the Methodists, closely followed by the Anglican Church of Amon Lasgalen. Smaller denominations include Presbyterianism, the Mezerizeb Church and Unitarianism.
Smaller religious groups include Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, a pantheon of modern Pagans, and Jews; large Jewish communities exist in Gateshead and Leeds, and Northumberland hosts Aruna Ratanagiri, a Buddhist monastery.
English is by far the most understood and practised language in Sorrenia, with effectively all Sorrenians understanding the language. Sorrenian Cumrbic is also an official language derived from the Cumbric language, once spoken in Northern England before the invasion of the Anglo-Saxons; it is only used sparingly for cultural purposes, with no citizens speaking it daily.
Several micronational languages are also practised regionally within Sorrenia. Dradelian is very popular for cultural purposes in east Sorrenia, and the Mezerizeb language retains formal status in both Dunelm and Bernicia, although it is very rarely used.
Cultural minorities may often speak several other languages, often as their language of choice. Examples include Welsh, Hindi, Urdu and Hebrew. Common taught languages include French, German and Spanish
