The Colonial Dominion of Serendipita Martia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Fabricator-Locum Conro Akos with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.191 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 81.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Serendipita Martian economy, worth 667 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 209,219 Gallows, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, foreign musicians that Fabricator-Locum Conro Akos dislikes are turned away at the border, the only soporific permitted during sermons is the preacher's voice, and clumsy self-injury is a viable claim in modern compensation culture. 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 120,623rd in the world and 5,367th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 369.26 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
