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 ritual sacrifices, infamous sell-swords, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.87 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 3.7%.

The frighteningly efficient PurgatoryHellspawn economy, worth an astonishing 10,424 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 524,639 I-O-U -es, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,052,032 per year while the poor average 42,632, a ratio of 71.6 to 1.

International war-crimes are good for business and business is booming, parents who refuse to vaccinate their children are given a short jail sentence, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, and dictionary sales have hit an all-time high. 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 10,748th in the world and 2nd in Future Earth for Most Conservative, scoring 78.85 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
