The Network Corporation of Serlone is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Venipal with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, prohibition of alcohol, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 10.206 billion Serloneans 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Uvenam. The average income tax rate is 55.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Serlonean economy, worth a remarkable 1,512 trillion Dits a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 148,224 Dits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.
On-duty Air Serlone flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, fly fishermen are legally forbidden from using electronic lures, "Mad Max: Returning Again to Barrydrome" is this year's unexpected summer blockbuster, and advertisers are struggling to make water sound cool to a twitchy public. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Serlone's national animal is the Double-Duck Goose, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Wealth.
