The Federation of Picardland is a massive, safe nation, notable for its national health service, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.132 billion Picardlandians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Francisco. The average income tax rate is 77.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Picardlandian economy, worth 86.3 trillion Gold Plated Latinums a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 76,241 Gold Plated Latinums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, voting is voluntary, and government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Picardland's national animal is the Tribbles, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Picardland is ranked 139,901st in the world and 7,589th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 8.12 Obesity Rate.
