The Most Serene Republic of Serenais is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Hélène Annfrancis with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.411 billion Serenaisians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alysius. The average income tax rate is 31.8%.

The sizeable but inefficient Serenaisian economy, worth 86.3 trillion Ohnsoes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,169 Ohnsoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets, discarded pennies litter the streets, teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, and beaches are empty as the shark population multiplies exponentially. Crime is totally unknown. Serenais's national animal is the red panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Serenais is ranked 121,053rd in the world and 5,863rd in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -6.32 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
