The Constitutional Monarchy of Sericena is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Hacker with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 3.55 billion Sericenans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aeternus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Sericenan economy, worth 608 trillion cenas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 171,361 cenas, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Stylish juvenile delinquents are highly overrepresented in fatal motorcycle accidents, retired racing panthers are served truffles for breakfast, international humanitarian organisations are applauding the government for ending the death penalty, and couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sericena's national animal is the panther, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sericena is ranked 83,124th in the world and 4,009th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.32 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
