The Realm of Serpens Land is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Edward II with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, feral children, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.036 billion Serpens Landers are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 38.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Serpens Land economy, worth 201 trillion Serpens Land Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 98,883 Serpens Land Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

King Edward II has declared a weed sticking through a crack in the sidewalk to be the nation's newest green space, it's always rabbit season, the government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, and Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume. 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 84,506th in the world and 77th in The Western Isles for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 142,674 Standard Monetary Units.
