Purple Plasma

Population4.707 billion



The Suppressed Discovery of Purple Plasma is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Blackfire with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working population of 4.707 billion Purple Plasmen are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The large, pro-business government prioritizes Welfare, with Education, Defense, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Environment receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kommandre. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.1%.

The very strong Purple Plasman economy, worth 211 trillion Rupees a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 44,904 Rupees, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 305,294 per year while the poor average 2,412, a ratio of 126 to 1.

Billions of Rupees are being poured into a space program, Purple Plasma has designated Kommandre as its capital city, science has been named as Purple Plasma's national religion, and Blackfire has just been declared ruler of Purple Plasma in an international press conference. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Purple Plasma's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is science.

Purple Plasma is ranked 144,801st in the world and 687th in The Allied Nations of Egalaria for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring zero on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
