The Pristine Protectorate of Seranis is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by a staunch environmentalist with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 28.899 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.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seranis Meadows. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Seranisian economy, worth an astonishing 10,384 trillion serans a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 359,348 serans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Replacement organs are grown in vats, the tenet of free speech is held dear, both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, and knock-knock jokes regularly get removed from websites for being too edgy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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, and its national religion is the Fellowship of Leaves.

Seranis is ranked 1,449th in the world and 20th in 10000 Islands for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 16,210.85 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
