The Realm of Serpens Land is a massive, safe nation, ruled by King Edward II with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.468 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Charlotte. The average income tax rate is 47.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Serpens Land economy, worth 461 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 103,388 Serpens Land Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nations across the world are quick to praise King Edward II's good looks and intellectual prowess, Serpens Land Rattlesnakes that venture near secret military bases are shipped off to prison for espionage, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, and every week is blindness awareness week. 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 213,923rd in the world and 157th in The Western Isles for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 12.41 on the Hayek Index.
