The Constitutional Monarchy of Sericena is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Hacker with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 1.255 billion Sericenans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aeternus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Sericenan economy, worth 179 trillion cenas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 143,414 cenas, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want, there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", and every week is blindness awareness week. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sericena's national animal is the panther, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sericena is ranked 129,071st in the world and 4,712th in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 164.23 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
