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 lack of airports, prohibition of alcohol, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.177 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, 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 80.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Serendipita Martian economy, worth 664 trillion Gallows a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 209,275 Gallows, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.

Gene-engineered sewerjacks don't smell but they do stink, career advisors ask sociopathic orphan girls if they have considered becoming professional assassins, exploding toys that leak battery acid are back in the shops after the government declared child safety 'over-rated', and the Farmer's Almanac is the most popular college textbook. 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 The Cult Mechanicus.

Serendipita Martia is ranked 186,230th in the world and 8,234th in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -7.35 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
