The Colonial Dominion of Serendipita Martia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Fabricator-Locum Conro Akos with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.144 billion Martians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Olympus Mons. The average income tax rate is 91.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Serendipita Martian economy, worth a remarkable 1,029 trillion Gallows a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 248,507 Gallows, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

The question of 'what is Fabricator-Locum Conro Akos's favorite color?' has been given a priority rating of burnt-orange, the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, and wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Serendipita Martia's national animal is the Axolotypus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Cult Mechanicus.

Serendipita Martia is ranked 29,850th in the world and 85th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,709.32 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
