The Pristine Protectorate of Seranis is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by a staunch environmentalist with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 26.456 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 9,480 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 358,346 serans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A staunch environmentalist can finally stop kneading the dough and start rolling in it instead, ignorance is considered a politically desirable quality, a widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat", and community organizers have given up going door to door because nobody is home. 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 631st in the world and 13th in 10000 Islands for Highest Poor Incomes, with 276,931.45 Standard Monetary Units.
