The Democratic States of Purple Pearl is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Councillor of Pearl with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.622 billion Pearlians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mother of Pearl. The average income tax rate is 79.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Purple Pearlian economy, worth 167 trillion pearls a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 103,391 pearls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains, an extra hand on the leg will give a horse-and-a-half of lead in a hundred jiffies on seven furlongs, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, and only lightning has a chance of striking Councillor of Pearl twice. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Purple Pearl's national animal is the emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Purple Pearl is ranked 253,558th in the world and 1,393rd in The Communist Bloc for Fattest Citizens, with 6.97 Obesity Rate.
