The Federal Republic of Serbskin is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 892 million Serbskinians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wenister. The average income tax rate is 73.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Serbskinian economy, worth 94.7 trillion Cyrils a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,160 Cyrils, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, demand for gourmet white truffles is on the rise, seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, and all government communication requires the imprimatur of the Truth Police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Serbskin's national animal is the Sloth Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Serbskin is ranked 49,764th in the world and 1st in The Chronicles for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 573.26 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
