The Pristine Protectorate of Seranis is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by a staunch environmentalist with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and public floggings. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.972 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 Environment, Education, 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 4,838 trillion serans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 323,186 serans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons, every week is blindness awareness week, cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, and you need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly. Crime 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 66,573rd in the world and 469th in 10000 Islands for Largest Black Market, with 433 billion Standard Monetary Units.
