The Realm of Serpens Land is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Karter Preston with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 829 million 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 30.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Serpens Land economy, worth 86.4 trillion Serpens Land Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 104,227 Serpens Land Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Most governmental positions are filled by zealous nationalists, elderly prisoners with severe dementia are reminded hourly that they are evil people by helpful nurse-wardens, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, and Prime Minister Karter Preston has just been declared ruler of Serpens Land in an international press conference. 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 40,832nd in the world and 46th in The Western Isles for Nudest, with 193.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
