The Federation of Picardland is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 784 million 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Francisco. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Picardlandian economy, worth 58.5 trillion Gold Plated Latinums a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 74,612 Gold Plated Latinums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Interest in globalism never flags, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Leader's bedroom, hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, and 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Picardlandian Space Agency. 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.
