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 prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 15.872 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stull Cemetary. The average income tax rate is 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Automobile Manufacturing.

Immigrant herding has become a national pastime, the government is reining in public spending, corporate 'hostile takeovers' now involve ICBMs and main battle tanks, and employers may fire workers without giving any reason. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. PurgatoryHell's national animal is the Unsightly Bum, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Waterboarding, and its currency is the I-O-U -e.

PurgatoryHell is ranked 1st in The Versutian Federation and 129th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 47 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

PurgatoryHell is currently researching a cure.
