The Empire of The Lilac Hand is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.055 billion Lilac Handians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Purple Hand. The average income tax rate is 7.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Lilac Handian economy, worth 74.0 trillion Imperial credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is 70,136 Imperial credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The mentally ill are given high powered automatic weapons for "catharsis therapy", the jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism, advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore, and there's no weight to modern politics. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Lilac Hand's national animal is the space orc, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Lilac Hand is ranked 15,870th in the world and 1st in Imperial Remnant for Most Avoided, scoring 227.83 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
