The Colonial Dominion of Serendipita Martia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Fabricator-Locum Conro Akos with an iron fist, and notable for its vat-grown people, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.124 billion Martians 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 Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Olympus Mons. The average income tax rate is 91.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Serendipita Martian economy, worth a remarkable 1,013 trillion Gallows a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 245,841 Gallows, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

It's best to decline if Fabricator-Locum Conro Akos offers to buy a round of drinks, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Serendipita Martia Blood Tithe, there's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days, and it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Serendipita Martia's national animal is the Axolotypus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Cult Mechanicus.

Serendipita Martia is ranked 223,330th in the world and 237th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Politically Free, scoring 9.43 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
