|Leader||Le Comité exécutif|
The Republic of Socialist Great Picardy is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Le Comité exécutif with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.868 billion Picards love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of La Commune. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Picardyian economy, worth 141 trillion Écus a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 49,234 Écus, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
All beauty contests have been banned, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, and many friends and relatives of Le Comité exécutif have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist Great Picardy's national animal is the Pheasant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
