The How did that trick work of Serrus is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Max-Prime with a fair hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.998 billion Serrin hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jancliff. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Serrin economy, worth 421 trillion fulgurs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 105,322 fulgurs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Books are so highly regarded in Serrus that libraries are often revered as holy shrines, increasing numbers of children in Serrus have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers, a the West Pacific Tourist Association survey has rated Serrus #1 for number twos, and all citizens must pass a 'multicultural sensitivity test' to be deemed fit for society. Crime is totally unknown. Serrus's national animal is the mongoose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a werewolf.

Serrus is ranked 98,600th in the world and 4,002nd in the West Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 5,162.36 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
