The United Sergwish States of Sergowana is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Divine Ruler Sergov with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 3.004 billion sergos 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Govag. The average income tax rate is 51.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sergwish economy, worth 336 trillion Sagas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,171 Sagas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Shanty towns of homeless immigrants are the ideal recruiting ground for terrorist organisations, anti-government web sites are springing up, blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic, and houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Sergowana's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is outlawed.

Sergowana is ranked 12,728th in the world and 265th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 8,148.29 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
