The Reformist Military Republic of Serkin is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Commander Manuel Carvajal with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, public floggings, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.617 billion Serkinians 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, 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 Golden Rose City. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Serkinian economy, worth 239 trillion Serkinoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 148,236 Serkinoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Colleges adhere to rigid ethnic quotas for admissions, giant beards and handlebar moustaches are increasingly popular, pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card, and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Serkin's national animal is the Spanish Coyote, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Serkin is ranked 4,739th in the world and 148th in The East Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 111.48 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
