The Theocracy of The Serene Celeste Colony is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Magnum Cardinalis Innocent XIV with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.96 billion Serene Celeste Colonyians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Bonifacio. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Serene Celeste Colonyian economy, worth 97.9 trillion Celestuses a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 49,970 Celestuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Metal detectors have been banned after a bottle cap caused a riot at the beach, vets have been drafted in to help "fix" those who fail the parental license exam, large areas of The Serene Celeste Colony are not accessible by the public, and parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Serene Celeste Colony's national animal is the Mighty Monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Monachism.

The Serene Celeste Colony is ranked 168,562nd in the world and 17th in Londinium for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -262.16 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
