The Socialist People's Republic of Picuros is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by the RCPP-ML with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.734 billion Picurians 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 large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Brussels. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Picurin economy, worth a remarkable 2,383 trillion eGuilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 272,907 eGuilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Interest in globalism never flags, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, war is made in the name of love, and abattoirs are struggling with the directive to 'wait until the animal dies of a ripe old age'. Crime is totally unknown. Picuros's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is state atheism.

Picuros is ranked 481st in the world and 12th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 14,594.61 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
