The Colonial Dominion of Serendipita Martia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Fabricator-Locum Conro Akos with an iron fist, and notable for its vat-grown people, prohibition of alcohol, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.105 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, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Olympus Mons. The average income tax rate is 67.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Serendipita Martian economy, worth 178 trillion Gallows a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 161,130 Gallows, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Serendipita Martia is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, a light facial coating of soot is seen as the mark of an honest and hardworking man, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward. 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 Cult Mechanicus.

Serendipita Martia is ranked 152,400th in the world and 7,851st in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 19.77 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
