The Sovereign Corporation of PQ Forge is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Seven with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 10.008 billion are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chapterhouse Prime. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Information Technology.

Curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, university graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts, reporters sent to cover suspected UFO visits come back with stories about quilting bees, and the nation leads The NationStates Community in per capita stalking. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. PQ Forge's national animal is the slave labourer, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Capitalism, and its currency is the GP.

PQ Forge is ranked 2nd in The NationStates Community and 1,156th in the world for Most Avoided, scoring 2,242.75 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
