Purple Wooloo

Population571 million


The Federation of Purple Wooloo is a huge, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic, devout population of 571 million Purple Woolooans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 59.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Purple Woolooan economy, worth 9.26 trillion Behhhs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, Furniture Restoration, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 16,212 Behhhs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown. Purple Wooloo's national animal is the Behh, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Purple Wooloo is ranked 88,186th in the world and 71st in Institute of Cellulose for Most Beautiful Environments, with 560.54 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
