Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Abyssal Caverns of PurgatoryHell is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Man in the Suit with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, avowedly heterosexual populace, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.49 billion PurgatoryHellspawn 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.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stull Cemetary. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.8%.

The frighteningly efficient PurgatoryHellspawn economy, worth an astonishing 10,204 trillion I-O-U -es a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 523,595 I-O-U -es, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,847,850 per year while the poor average 49,494, a ratio of 57.5 to 1.

Airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, bicyclists are banned from major roads, forecasts predict rains of loose lead and mortar shells for the next six weeks, and police drones follow every suspected Peeping Tom. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. PurgatoryHell's national animal is the Unsightly Bum, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Waterboarding.

PurgatoryHell is ranked 1,956th in the world and 1st in Future Earth for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 66.53 Whatever.
