The Pristine Protectorate of Seranis is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by a staunch environmentalist with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 20.46 billion Seranisians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seranis Meadows. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Seranisian economy, worth a remarkable 7,205 trillion serans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 352,151 serans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, and rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Seranis's national animal is the elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Fellowship of Leaves.

Seranis is ranked 77,631st in the world and 401st in 10000 Islands for Most Pro-Market, scoring 49.67 on the Rand Index.
