The Holy Principality of Freedom of Violet Hedgehog is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Yellow Sunny Victoria with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.152 billion Violet Hedgehogians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Salmon Rose Igel. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Violet Hedgehogian economy, worth 553 trillion Blue Hedgehogs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 175,634 Blue Hedgehogs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, anti-government web sites are springing up, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, and a PhD just ain't what it used to be. Crime is totally unknown. Violet Hedgehog's national animal is the Zombi Hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Be nice.

Violet Hedgehog is ranked 183,249th in the world and 180th in New Western Empire for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -6.32 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
