The Shining Purple Light

Population7.437 billion

CapitalHong Kong
LeaderPresident Emily Lau

CurrencyHong Kong Dollar

The Republic of The Shining Purple Light is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Emily Lau with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, cynical population of 7.437 billion Hong Kongers are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hong Kong. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Hong Kongese economy, worth 962 trillion Hong Kong Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is an impressive 129,476 Hong Kong Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, and Brown Sugar 101 is a popular course at community colleges. Crime is totally unknown. The Shining Purple Light's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Buddhism.

The Shining Purple Light is ranked 168,427th in the world and 187th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -695.28 on the Hayek Index.
