The Principality of Purple Rain 57 is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prince with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 2.172 billion Purple Rain 57ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Paul. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Purple Rain 57ian economy, worth 331 trillion florins 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, broadly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, Soda Sales, and Basket Weaving. 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 impressive 152,668 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Large areas of Purple Rain 57 are not accessible by the public, brains have been removed from lists of best brain foods, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and citizens sell their moldy bread as homemade penicillin. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Purple Rain 57's national animal is the kangaroo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Love Symbol.

Purple Rain 57 is ranked 5,361st in the world and 241st in NationStates for Most Avoided, scoring 199.85 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
