The Holy Empire of Shades_Of_Purple is a massive, genial nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.694 billion Shades_Of_Purpleans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tyrian. The average income tax rate is 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Shades_Of_Purplean economy, worth 137 trillion Lavenders a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is 51,034 Lavenders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
Heavy industry grinds to a halt as new equipment must be biked in, graffiti graces every city's streets, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, and orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shades_Of_Purple's national animal is the Violetfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
