The United Republics of Normandy and Picardy is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Conseil des Républiques with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, humorless population of 13.094 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 Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rouen. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The all-consuming Normand economy, worth a remarkable 1,411 trillion Normand Francs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Cheese Exports industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 107,781 Normand Francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present, people who tease dwarfs are being cut down to size, and cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates. 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 Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Normandy and Picardy is ranked 190,864th in the world and 215th in Social Liberal Union for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 43.47 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
