The Community of Serpenteum is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Florin Khanar with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 2.7 billion Serpenteans 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Velvetia. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Serpenteumian economy, worth 448 trillion Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 166,091 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Immigrant herding has become a national pastime, a ban on robots in disguise has transformed the entertainment industry, disposable antiseptic wipes are considered a social necessity, and the Serpenteum Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise. Crime is totally unknown. Serpenteum's national animal is the grass snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Serpenteum is ranked 19,194th in the world and 28th in Northern Utopia for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7,305.96 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
