Picon is a small, developing, and maturing nation at 40 days old with citizens primarily of Caucasian ethnicity whose religion is Taoism. Its technology is advancing rapidly. Its citizens enjoy a wealth of technology within their nation. Its citizens pay high taxes and constantly express grievances about their government and work environments. The citizens of Picon work diligently to produce Silver and Lumber as tradable resources for their nation. It is an aggressive country that some say has an itch for war. It believes nuclear weapons are necessary for the security of its people. The military of Picon has been positioned at all border crossings and is arresting all drug traffickers. Picon does not allow any form of government protests. Its armed police forces work quickly at "dissolving" any and all government protests. It has an open border policy, but in order for immigrants to remain in the country they will have to become citizens first. Picon detains individuals who participate in the slanderous comments about the government. The government gives foreign aid when it can, but looks to take care of its own people first. Picon will not make deals with another country that has a poor history of inhuman treatment of its citizens.

Picon is densly forested, with the game being deer, bears, foxes, rabbits and other animals. The national animal is the hawk, which flies freely in the nation's dark forests.
The country's media network spreads far throughout the reaches of Picon. The State monitored radio stations also reach the entire country as well. Newspapers are many and varied in quantity. While the constitution defends liberty of expression, the government has regularly restricted this right due to massive government protests, and at the end of 2007 began to enact a system of prior censorship on the media.
