The Queen's State of Violet Shiomi is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 13.279 billion Violet Shiomians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.2%.
The thriving Violet Shiomian economy, worth 716 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Cheese Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 53,988 betales, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 256,159 per year while the poor average 6,715, a ratio of 38.1 to 1.
Surveillance cameras are banned, X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and fur coats have become the latest fashion trend. Crime is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Violet Shiomi's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
