Read our factbooks before posting about us. We do not use anything else.
Also read this before saying anything about our leader's politics.

Main Factbook Our Leader
A late-MT democratic federal republic covering most of Europe with a hybrid social market-state capitalist economy.
Has absolutely nothing to do with the EU or the CSA. Currently undergoing a more overhaul.


OOC: Same person as Teienshi, though the two nations take place in separate universes.

-NS Stats are not used-
The Chinese government only has itself to blame for the rise of sinophobia.

Breaking News: Philippinae recognizes the new anti-China government of Sri Lanka and Kenya. || Weapons shipment to pro-China rebels intercepted. Chinese smugglers arrested, will be facing trial and possible torturous execution.

OOC: There is really nothing wrong in speaking or studying chinese languages. What I find objectionable is that universities allow a chinese government-funded Confucius Institute to operate within their walls and spew chinese government propaganda crap to students and stifle the academic freedom of these institutions.

A. GENERAL

1. Full nation name: The Archduchy of Purpelia
2. Type of government: Federation of absolute monarchies with a HRE style elective supreme monarch
3. Which legal system is used? Check all that apply:
[] Common law
[] Civil law
[] Socialist law
[] Religious law
[X] Other:
Purpelian law is based on ancient Purpelian custom as well as concepts of modern Napoleonic law. There is no separation between civil and criminal courts, no juries and the relationship between legal representatives are inquisitorial rather than adversarial. Laws are shaped based on utility and folk custom.

4. Does capital punishment exist in law? No.
5. Is capital punishment used in practice? No
6. In what year was capital punishment abolished (if applicable)? Purpelians have newer killed other Purpelians. The closest thing to it historically would have been exile. Which is frankly a death sentence but without anyone getting their hands dirty.
7. In what year was the most recent execution? N/A
8. On average, how many prisoners are executed per year? N/A
Purpelia does not reflect my actual world views. In fact, the vast majority of Purpelian cannon is meant to shock and thus deliberately insane. I just like playing with the idea of a country of madmen utterly convinced that everyone else are the barbarians. So play along or not but don't ever think it's for real.
