The Society of The Serdey Islands is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Julius Pringles with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, keen interest in outer space, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.53 billion Serdeyians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pringlepolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 44.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Serdeyian economy, worth 675 trillion Serdey Islands dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 191,435 Serdey Islands dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,604,889 per year while the poor average 4,381, a ratio of 366 to 1.

A citizen who thinks a slave is a deadbeat is entitled to make the descriptor literally true, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, the nation is loathed abroad for dumping all of its waste in international waters, and many suspect the government "doth protest too much" with their curiously specific denials of conspiracy theories. Crime is totally unknown. The Serdey Islands's national animal is the North Pacific tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Pringleism.

The Serdey Islands is ranked 104,018th in the world and 6,050th in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 38.65 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
