The Empire of Serboro is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Valkyrie with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, vat-grown people, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.385 billion Serboroans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ruyi. The average income tax rate is 49.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Serboroan economy, worth a remarkable 1,632 trillion Gols a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 221,074 Gols, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, the government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers, emojis are the soul of wit, and not showing enough enthusiasm for mutual assured destruction is a court-martial offence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Serboro's national animal is the Serpent, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Serboro is ranked 9,443rd in the world and 13th in The Black Hawks for Smartest Citizens, with 90.28 Quips Per Hour.
