The Pristine Protectorate of Seranis is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by a staunch environmentalist with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 20.443 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 a remarkable 7,195 trillion serans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 351,980 serans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

There are traffic jams at sea as diligent customs officers check every part of every ship, S-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, and drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government. 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 193rd in the world and 10th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 56,017.11 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
