Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Abyssal Caverns of PurgatoryHell is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Man in the Suit with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, enslaved workforce, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.333 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 32.0%.

The frighteningly efficient PurgatoryHellspawn economy, worth a remarkable 9,421 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. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is a breathtaking 543,530 I-O-U -es, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,189,667 per year while the poor average 43,266, a ratio of 73.7 to 1.

Appendix transplant figures have recently doubled, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, meat is a luxury afforded only to the wealthy, and Ollie the Oiled Seal welcomes throngs of tourists to the newly opened Oil Oasis Water Park. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 800th in 10000 Islands and 55,397th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 8 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
