The Spooky Ghost of The Serres Republic is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Serres The Ghostie Goo with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 6.787 billion Serrenians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tyrel. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Serres Republician economy, worth a remarkable 1,094 trillion Skeleton Coins a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 161,305 Skeleton Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Serres The Ghostie Goo to meetings with foreign heads of state, Serres The Ghostie Goo is described as an everyday person with normal tastes and the usual interests, Serres Republician athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump, and kids these days know how to throw a proper punch. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Serres Republic's national animal is the Dog-host, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Church of Boo.

The Serres Republic is ranked 3,601st in the world and 53rd in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 15,703.82 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
