The Society of The Serdey Islands is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Julius Pringles with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, flagrant waste-dumping, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.797 billion Serdeyians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pringlepolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Serdeyian economy, worth 768 trillion Serdey Islands dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 202,310 Serdey Islands dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,713,239 per year while the poor average 4,361, a ratio of 392 to 1.

Male friends are often accompanied by a female relative in order to prove their 'straightness', politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, military training in The Serdey Islands emphasizes the tactical advantages of stabbing backs, and pawn shop reality shows dominate basic cable. Crime is totally unknown. The Serdey Islands's national animal is the North Pacific tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Pringleism.

The Serdey Islands is ranked 11,570th in the world and 638th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 6,254.95 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
