Purple Hyacinth

Population1.136 billion



The Chair of Purple Hyacinth is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Flower with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.136 billion Purple Hyacinthians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flower. The average income tax rate is 84.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Purple Hyacinthian economy, worth 67.1 trillion flowers a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 59,067 flowers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, Flower has just been declared ruler of Purple Hyacinth in an international press conference, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, and Sophism has been named as Purple Hyacinth's national religion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Purple Hyacinth's national animal is the flower, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sophism.

Purple Hyacinth is ranked 223,929th in the world and 8,317th in the South Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -16.37 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
