The New Republic of Serendipita is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Sebastian Chance with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.685 billion Serendipitans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexon. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Serendipitan economy, worth 818 trillion Gallows a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 222,122 Gallows, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit, criminals are thrown to the Axolotypuses to repay their debt to society, city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, and corruption is a game of two halves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Serendipita's national animal is the Axolotypus, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Serendipita is ranked 7,859th in the world and 8th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 5,300.32 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
