The Cultural Hybrid Empire of Serica- is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Zhang Marcus with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, aversion to nipples, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.049 billion Sericans 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 Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Li-Jien. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 82.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Serican economy, worth a remarkable 1,177 trillion yuns a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 290,906 yuns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,118,485 per year while the poor average 52,102, a ratio of 21.5 to 1.

Alcoholics are lauded as national benefactors within the halls of the Ministry of Finance, the fate of the world literally rests on Emperor Zhang Marcus's fingers, it isn't only obsequious grandees who produce a lot of manure at state occasions, and distant and obscure male relatives succeed to the Serican throne. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Serica-'s national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Pantheonism.

Serica- is ranked 241,783rd in the world and 46th in Deep Storage for Most Armed, with 0.13 Weapons Per Person.
