The Blue Wastelands of Serenicy is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Serene Justice with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, public floggings, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 17.936 billion Serenes are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government prioritizes Industry, with Education and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Public Transport aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mekkgenaire. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Serenicyian economy, worth a remarkable 2,211 trillion Polar Crowns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 123,325 Polar Crowns, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 451,903 per year while the poor average 23,841, a ratio of 19.0 to 1.

Panthers with strange deformities like three eyes and tentacles have been seen prancing through the countryside where industrial waste is dumped, private law firms are unheard of, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, and believers must practice religion behind church doors lest the government smite them with a mighty fine. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Serenicy's national animal is the Panther, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Carlinism.

Serenicy is ranked 195,220th in the world and 5,903rd in Osiris for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.23 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
