The Abyssal Caverns of PurgatoryHell is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by The Man in the Suit with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 15.496 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.

Ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs, and movies and computer games are strictly censored for violence. 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 118th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 22 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
