The Borders of PurpleJourney is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Hispikulus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.72 billion Voyagers love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jutuan Central. The average income tax rate is 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong PurpleJourneyian economy, worth 880 trillion quoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Tourism, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 69,256 quoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, Hispikulus has been known to make speeches in fishing waders, and movie references are legally admissible in court. Crime is totally unknown. PurpleJourney's national animal is the firefly, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Sciontology.

PurpleJourney is ranked 52,349th in the world and 2nd in Glitch for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 95.76 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
