The Federation of Picardland is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.965 billion Picardlandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment 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 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Picardlandian economy, worth 148 trillion Gold Plated Latinums a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,511 Gold Plated Latinums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new Liquor Legitimacy Office is besieged with job applications from people who have experience in "statistical sampling methods", military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", and surveillance cameras are banned. 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 38,481st in the world and 1,994th in The North Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 55.58 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
