The Battle-Ready Legions of Purple Empire is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Jannikus Commodus with an iron fist, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, prohibition of alcohol, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.616 billion Purple Imperials are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Purple City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Purple Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 5,266 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 417,455 Imperial Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

A signed affidavit from a prominent anti-corruption advocate declares that she is in fact a crook after all, flatulent people are left to die of cancer at the end of hospital waiting lists, small shoes often wash up on the beach, and vacationing Purple Imperials expect to be treated as royalty. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Purple Empire's national animal is the Imperial Tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is God-Emperorism.

Purple Empire is ranked 176,835th in the world and 10th in Imperium of the Wolf for Most Pro-Market, scoring -72.78 on the Rand Index.
