The Colonial Dominion of Serendipita Martia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Fabricator-Locum Conro Akos with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, zero percent divorce rate, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.203 billion Martians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Olympus Mons. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 81.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Serendipita Martian economy, worth 669 trillion Gallows a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 208,964 Gallows, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

Illegal book-trafficking rings dominate the black market, many believe that the only good Axolotypus is a dead Axolotypus, anyone who doesn't attend Official Governmental Religious Services is fined, and too many developers spoil the codebase. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Serendipita Martia's national animal is the Axolotypus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Cult Mechanicus.

Serendipita Martia is ranked 79,707th in the world and 3,952nd in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 265.32 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
