The Holy Empire of Violetists is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, infamous sell-swords, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.574 billion Violetists are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 36.2%.

The strong Violetist economy, worth 83.9 trillion skulls a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 53,308 skulls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Academics are questioning the quality of the nation's newly-reprinted science textbooks, the new iVote app allows representatives to vote on legislation by launching ill-tempered birds and matching candies, morale within the seismologist community has hit rock bottom, and lifeguards are more concerned with watching for sharks than struggling swimmers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Violetists's national animal is the skeleton, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Violetists is ranked 167,352nd in the world and 5,877th in The East Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 9.35 Obesity Rate.
