The Republic of A Serial Jaywalker is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.957 billion Serial Jaywalkerians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.2%.

The very strong Serial Jaywalkerian economy, worth 132 trillion violation tickets a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is 67,955 violation tickets, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 376,430 per year while the poor average 6,172, a ratio of 61.0 to 1.

Corporations claim the third ounce of any metal traded in a wicker-cone on the Sunday of a full moon as a charitable expense, toxic smog is dismissed as the populace just "letting off steam", board shorts have replaced board rooms, and dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. A Serial Jaywalker's national animal is the 2000 pound weapon moving at 50 mph, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

A Serial Jaywalker is ranked 29,361st in the world and 6th in Jutomi Puppet Storage for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 97.01 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
