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 remarkable for its smutty television, enslaved workforce, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.047 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, 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 3.6%.

The frighteningly efficient PurgatoryHellspawn economy, worth an astonishing 10,560 trillion I-O-U -es a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 526,781 I-O-U -es, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,489,277 per year while the poor average 30,576, a ratio of 114 to 1.

Freighter lifeboats have been replaced by state of the art marker buoys so divers can recover the cargo after they sink, one year's corporation tax from three international megacorporations has funded one dozen shiny black pencils for The Man in the Suit's office, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great PurgatoryHellspawn Liberator", and foreign governments regularly accuse the PurgatoryHellspawn military of war crimes. 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 49th in the world and 1st in Future Earth for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 1,022.27 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
