The Realm of Serpens Land is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 566 million Serpens Landers are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Charlotte. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Serpens Land economy, worth 63.5 trillion Serpens Land Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 112,141 Serpens Land Pounds, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 432,824 per year while the poor average 19,961, a ratio of 21.7 to 1.

Society has literally been thrown to the wolves, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, devotion to God is only skin-deep, and anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Serpens Land's national animal is the Serpens Land Rattlesnake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Serpens Land is ranked 132,239th in the world and 142nd in The Western Isles for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 19.85 Effective Tax Rate.
