Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Sovereign Corporation of PQ Forge is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Seven with an iron fist, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 15.765 billion employees 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 minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chapterhouse Prime. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Corporate Employee economy, worth a remarkable 6,144 trillion GPS a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 389,735 GPS, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,146,918 per year while the poor average 104,274, a ratio of 11.0 to 1.

All guns must be registered, jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses', political loyalty is enforced by way of chemical addiction, and believers must practice religion behind church doors lest the government smite them with a mighty fine. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. PQ Forge's national animal is the slave labourer, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Capitalism.

PQ Forge is ranked 179,080th in the world and 693rd in NationStates for Highest Average Tax Rates, with -6.23 Effective Tax Rate.
