The Federal Republic of Violet Hedgehog is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 338 million Violet Hedgehogians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Law & Order, and Environment also on the agenda, while Defense and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Igel. The average income tax rate is 66.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Violet Hedgehogian economy, worth 12.9 trillion Hedgehogs 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is 38,310 Hedgehogs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, tourists are denied entry because of a distant relative married to a Lilliputian, the average commuter spends four hours a day driving to and from work, and judicial robes are the country's hottest fashion trend. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Violet Hedgehog's national animal is the Hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Violet Hedgehog is ranked 144,133rd in the world and 174th in New Western Empire for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8.98 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
