The Arch Duchy of Purpelia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Arch Duke Felix Purpelius with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 21.225 billion Purpelians are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Felix. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.3%.

The very strong Purpelian economy, worth a remarkable 1,800 trillion Reichsthalers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 84,837 Reichsthalers, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, abortions are routinely performed in Purpelia's hospitals, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Purpelia's national animal is the dodo bird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Purpelia is ranked 158,434th in the world and 1st in Central Powers for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.61 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
