The Empire of Serpenta is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The cynical population of 253 million Serpentans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 49.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Serpentan economy, worth 11.0 trillion coins a year, is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 43,295 coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Foreign Ministry thinks an eye for an eye is a blindingly good idea, the government thinks Serpentans can achieve social cohesion by drinking soda together, all children's clothes come in only cream and off-white to prevent offense, and drivers regularly pull over for nonexistent police cars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Serpenta's national animal is the snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Serpenta is ranked 191,652nd in the world and 87th in The Wolf Clan for Largest Populations, with 253 million Capita.
