The Shining Purple Light

LeaderPresident Claudia Mo

CurrencyHong Kong Dollar

The Republic of The Shining Purple Light is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Claudia Mo with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, hatred of cheese, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cynical population of 8.309 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 a remarkable 1,076 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 129,566 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 152,698th in the world and 154th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Devout, with 5.04 Prayers Per Hour.
