Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Alien Sultanate of Serandum is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and ban on automobiles. The hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 28.592 billion Serandumians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Environment and Education are also considered important, while Healthcare and Welfare aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.2%.

The strong Serandumian economy, worth a remarkable 3,643 trillion sendums a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 127,415 sendums, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 516,612 per year while the poor average 20,918, a ratio of 24.7 to 1.

Half of Serandum's doctors can't speak the language, the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, the welfare administration’s new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists, and large areas of Serandum are not accessible by the public. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Serandum's national animal is the koala, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Serandum is ranked 32nd in Africa and 70,502nd in the world for Most Extreme, scoring 17 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
