The Sacred Forests of The Realm of Violet is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Låga Träd with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, public floggings, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.681 billion Violetians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Spirituality, with Law & Order, Administration, and Defense also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ooga Ooga. The average income tax rate is 73.0%.

The strong Violetii economy, worth 107 trillion Big Rocks 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. 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 64,071 Big Rocks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's youth is held blameless for all crimes, the state believes that children are what you make of them, wanting a better life for your child is prohibited by a clause in the criminal code, and international trade can be a pain to deal with. Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. The Realm of Violet's national animal is the Meat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Violetism.

The Realm of Violet is ranked 218,713th in the world and 505th in The Free Nations Region for Most Secular, with 1.68 Atheism Rate.
