The Armed Republic of Serenica is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Venerable Dom with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.134 billion Serenicans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Serdenium. The average income tax rate is 57.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Serenican economy, worth 315 trillion Serneums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 147,859 Serneums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, in the Beginning was the Word and the Word was "Pragmatism", houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, and money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Serenica's national animal is the Condor, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Serenicanism.

Serenica is ranked 20,452nd in the world and 10th in Warzone Sandbox for Lowest Crime Rates, with 81.13 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
