The People's Democratic Republic of Seratiago is a huge, genial nation, ruled by President Boof Bonza with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 918 million Seratiagoans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Kathleen. The average income tax rate is 89.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Seratiagoan economy, worth 103 trillion dongles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 112,861 dongles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony, there is a heavy social stigma attached to e-cigarettes, and unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Seratiago's national animal is the ferret, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Seratiago is ranked 7,690th in the world and 259th in The East Pacific for Nicest Citizens, with 35.51 average smiles per day.
