The Rogue Nation of Serseitevis is a massive, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.105 billion Serseitevisians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 47.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Serseitevisian economy, worth 28.1 trillion Foods a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Basket Weaving, Tourism, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 25,459 Foods, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', and most towns have their Leader High School located on Leader Street. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Serseitevis's national animal is the squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Serseitevis is ranked 213,912th in the world and 6,866th in Balder for Rudest Citizens, with 21.43 Insults Per Minute.
