The Pristine Protectorate of Seranis is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by a staunch environmentalist with a fair hand, and notable for its lack of airports, strictly enforced bedtime, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.513 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 5,063 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 326,412 serans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A staunch environmentalist's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, and citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons. 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 150,664th in the world and 1,256th in 10000 Islands for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.28 Crimes Per Hour.
