The People's Federation of Piacentine is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by High-Chief Ryan with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, complete lack of prisons, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate population of 16.46 billion Centians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bisnieta. The average income tax rate is 10.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Piacenti economy, worth a remarkable 3,975 trillion Pucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 241,502 Pucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign policy often involves bullwhips and leather, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, factories are regularly demolished to make way for low-cost housing areas, and meat-eating is frowned upon. Crime is totally unknown. Piacentine's national animal is the Mongoose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Piacentine is ranked 6,435th in the world and 3rd in The Milky Way Galaxy for Most Stationary, with 1,975.66540224 Days.
