Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Alien Sultanate of Serandum is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 31.736 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 receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.6%.

The strong Serandumian economy, worth a remarkable 4,040 trillion sendums a year, 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 127,321 sendums, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 513,893 per year while the poor average 21,061, a ratio of 24.4 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 19,946th in the world and 14th in Africa for Most Devout, with 1,074.08 Prayers Per Hour.
