The People's Republic of Socialist Seres is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 358 million Socialist Seresians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 53.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Socialist Seresian economy, worth 27.6 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 76,956 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A sledgehammer and a spray can are seen as the default tools of political debate, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, nerds everywhere are rejoicing as they are reunited with their computers, and peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist Seres's national animal is the Godzilla, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Socialist Seres is ranked 10,292nd in the world and 154th in The Internationale for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 78.19 Workforce Participation Rate.
