Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

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 barren, inhospitable landscape, strictly enforced bedtime, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.319 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 2.0%.

The frighteningly efficient PurgatoryHellspawn economy, worth an astonishing 10,058 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. Average income is a breathtaking 520,668 I-O-U -es, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,002,819 per year while the poor average 43,173, a ratio of 69.6 to 1.

The government is cracking down on subversive groups, the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament, manual labourers must be willing to have cybernetic limbs to get a job, and the National Archive now covers square miles of warehouses in order to accommodate its new stone tablets system. 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 178,369th in the world and 16th in Future Earth for Highest Drug Use, scoring 2.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
