The Colonial Dominion of Serendipita Martia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Fabricator-Locum Conro Akos with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, strictly enforced bedtime, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.732 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, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Olympus Mons. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Serendipita Martian economy, worth 324 trillion Gallows a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 187,335 Gallows, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 658,463 per year while the poor average 38,626, a ratio of 17.0 to 1.

The government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, takeaway food bought on the weekend now comes with fifty percent more sweat and tears, war vets look after war animals, and folk are absolutely certain that you can never be absolutely certain. 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 Cult Mechanicus.

Serendipita Martia is ranked 7,515th in the world and 437th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 91.28 on the Human Development Index.
