The Holy Principality of Violet Hedgehog is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Yellow Sunny Victoria with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.693 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Igel. The average income tax rate is 87.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Violet Hedgehogian economy, worth 436 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 Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 162,031 Hedgehogs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Generals have trouble barking orders over the sound of thundering artillery, practising saying 'how now brown cow' is an essential part of holiday planning, the nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event, and a bureaucratic fight over VHIA cafeteria food expenditures has caused the temporary suspension of all agency counterintelligence operations. 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 5,265th in the world and 17th in New Western Empire for Most Developed, scoring 93.37 on the Human Development Index.
