The Department of Piura is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Governor Jonathan Murao with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.396 billion Piurans 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ciudad Piura. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Piuran economy, worth 498 trillion Sols a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 146,818 Sols, with the richest citizens earning 9.9 times as much as the poorest.

Governor Jonathan Murao has a wardrobe full of fake designer suits, sushi is sold on the black market, people are careful to avoid hyperbolising that they'd "rather die" than support Governor Jonathan Murao, and politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Piura's national animal is the Sea Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Roman Catholic.

Piura is ranked 53,851st in the world and 1,375th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,236.87 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
