The Dominion of Serpens Land is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 420 million Serpens Landers are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Charlotte. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Serpens Land economy, worth 46.8 trillion Serpens Land Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 111,424 Serpens Land Pounds, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 433,389 per year while the poor average 19,587, a ratio of 22.1 to 1.

Young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, and the government tells its citizens to 'forgive and forget'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Serpens Land's national animal is the Serpens Land Rattlesnake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Serpens Land is ranked 20,919th in the world and 58th in The Western Isles for Most Developed, scoring 80.93 on the Human Development Index.
