The Theocracy of The Serene City is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by MrSerene with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The compassionate, devout population of 13.112 billion Serene Cityians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Law & Order, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of SereneCity. The average income tax rate is 38.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Serene Cityian economy, worth 722 trillion gifts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 55,110 gifts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Critical thinking is grounds for expulsion from university, billions of gifts are spent to take high-quality photos of the Dove Nebula, MrSerene has incinerated the international climate treaty in a public coal-burning ceremony, and MrSerene lights cigars with a hundred-gift bill. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Serene City's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

The Serene City is ranked 86,498th in the world and 110th in Nederland for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 1,149.88 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
