The Realm of Serpens Land is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Karter Preston with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.527 billion Serpens Landers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Charlotte. The average income tax rate is 35.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Serpens Land economy, worth 156 trillion Serpens Land Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 102,541 Serpens Land Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Town welcome signs list corporate sponsors, Prime Minister Karter Preston has taken to wearing medal-adorned military uniform in all public appearances, it's a marvellous night for a moon dance as the sparks on your home start to rise, and Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Serpens Land's national animal is the Serpens Land Rattlesnake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Serpens Land is ranked 37,640th in the world and 49th in The Western Isles for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 3,936.04 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
