Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of Serendopolis is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Her Serene Highness Serendipidy Haven with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, aversion to nipples, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.367 billion Serendopolisians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Big Pineapple. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Serendopolisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,235 trillion milk of human kindnesses a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 99,933 milk of human kindnesses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, and citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Serendopolis's national animal is the woolly mammoth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Serendopolis is ranked 11,505th in the world and 1st in Penny Lane for Most Inclusive, scoring 168.7 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
