The Chair of Purple Hyacinth is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Flower with a fair hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.084 billion Purple Hyacinthians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flower. The average income tax rate is 83.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Purple Hyacinthian economy, worth 65.5 trillion flowers a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 60,409 flowers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, Flower has just been declared ruler of Purple Hyacinth in an international press conference, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, and Sophism has been named as Purple Hyacinth's national religion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Purple Hyacinth's national animal is the flower, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sophism.

Purple Hyacinth is ranked 223,839th in the world and 8,519th in the South Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -13.2 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
