The Federal Republic of Purple Ruthenia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Federal President with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.544 billion Purple Ruthenians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fioletovogrod. The average income tax rate is 41.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Purple Ruthenian economy, worth 243 trillion Koronas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is 95,565 Koronas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, blue sky thinkers are reminded that the firmament is actually more of a grey-ish colour, the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community, and primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Purple Ruthenia's national animal is the Mallard Duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
