The Colonial Dominion of Serendipita Martia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Fabricator-Locum Conro Akos with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, vat-grown people, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.099 billion Martians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Olympus Mons. The average income tax rate is 67.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Serendipita Martian economy, worth 176 trillion Gallows a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 160,658 Gallows, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation, the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, and victims of crime are viewed as less trustworthy than politicians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Serendipita Martia's national animal is the Axolotypus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cult Mechanicus.

Serendipita Martia is ranked 23,423rd in the world and 1,224th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 72.18 on the Human Development Index.
