The Holy Kingdom of Piacentini is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Archibald XV with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and frequent executions. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 3.617 billion Piacentinians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Piacentopolis. The average income tax rate is 73.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Piacentish economy, worth 335 trillion Piacents a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 92,746 Piacents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, spontaneous nocturnal decapitation is considered 'death by natural causes' for enemies of Piacentini, for 25 Piacents tourists can gawk at the site of national tragedy, and the nation has declared war on all passing comets. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Piacentini's national animal is the Stump, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Piacentini is ranked 141,637th in the world and 5th in SLULID for Most Avoided, scoring 0.78 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
