The People's Republic of Seraluka is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Benevolent Leader Jelena Petrovic with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, lack of airports, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 12.04 billion Seraluks are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Social Policy, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Danugrad. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The large but sluggish Seralukan economy, worth 652 trillion Rublas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports and Information Technology. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 54,222 Rublas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The derisively named "Morlocks of Moria" futilely demand time in the sun, high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, pro-wrestling bouts open with a legal disclaimer insisting that any violence is guaranteed 100% faked, and stuttering trypanophobes are doomed never to marry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Seraluka's national animal is the Burrowing Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Seraluka is ranked 5,871st in the world and 319th in Lazarus for Most Cultured, scoring 138 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
