The United Republics of Normandy and Picardy is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by François Alaphillipe with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, humorless population of 11.367 billion Normands are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caen. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The all-consuming Normand economy, worth a remarkable 1,224 trillion Normand Francs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Cheese Exports industry. Average income is an impressive 107,722 Normand Francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here, commuters often break into synchronised para-para dancing for no reason at all, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Normandy and Picardy's national animal is the Blackadder, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Normandy and Picardy is ranked 167,013th in the world and 85th in Social Liberal Union for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -11.49 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
