The Principality of Purple Rain 90 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prince with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, ubiquitous missile silos, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.173 billion Purple Rain 90ians 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Paul. The average income tax rate is 66.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Purple Rain 90ian economy, worth 335 trillion bitcoins 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 black market in Retail, Gambling, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 154,529 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pet owners make sure their dogs wear diapers, children who display even minimal sporting aptitude are immediately assigned a personal trainer, factories place endangered birds in their rafters in pursuit of government protections, and all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons'. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Purple Rain 90's national animal is the bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Love Symbol.

Purple Rain 90 is ranked 4,323rd in the world and 188th in NationStates for Most Avoided, scoring 234.91 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
