The Imperial Republic of Republic of Sernia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Even Davis with an iron fist, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, ban on automobiles, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.417 billion Sernians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Uraniopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Sernian economy, worth 832 trillion Units a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 243,554 Units, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 879,160 per year while the poor average 48,199, a ratio of 18.2 to 1.

The legal system for the political class is completely separate from the one for normal citizens, the intelligence community is playing 4-D chess with an imaginary spy network, public ferries only carry enough lifeboats for the first-class passengers, and economists claim no news is good news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Republic of Sernia's national animal is the Sernian Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Republic of Sernia is ranked 8,476th in the world and 16th in South Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 6,798 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
