The Socialist People's Republic of Picuros is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the RCPP-ML with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.514 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 2,872 trillion florins 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 273,245 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, skateparks can be found in every city, and the nation's beloved 'good-natured doormat' is inundated by begging letters. 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 270,224th in the world and 1,951st in The Communist Bloc for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -1465.39 on the Hayek Index.
