The Pristine Protectorate of Seranis is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by a staunch environmentalist with a fair hand, and renowned for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 9.381 billion Seranisians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seranis Meadows. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, prison visits increase substantially during election years, and Seranis's schoolchildren are manufactured into a segregated bunch of soldiers, religious zealots, and computer technicians. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Seranis's national animal is the elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Fellowship of Leaves, and its currency is the seran.

Seranis is ranked 1,035th in 10000 Islands and 114,405th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -91 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
