The Colonial Dominion of Serendipita Martia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Fabricator-Locum Conro Akos with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.159 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. The average income tax rate is 82.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Serendipita Martian economy, worth 660 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 common. Average income is an amazing 208,975 Gallows, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy, the monarch frequently needs protecting from misfiring protection, and 4-year-olds studying for their mathematics exams are anxious that they will be unemployable in adulthood if they fail. 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 211,324th in the world and 9,572nd in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -182.67 on the Hayek Index.
