The Queen's State of Violet Shiomi is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 10.896 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.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Retail, Soda Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing industries.

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, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Violet Shiomi's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the betale.

Violet Shiomi is ranked 67th in the Mars and 4,978th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 3 on the Hayek Index.
