OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Abyssal Caverns of PurgatoryHell is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Man in the Suit with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 15.816 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.

The adult unemployment rate nears 100% as all available jobs have been filled by young children, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, and the government's official position on invasive species is 'who cares?'. 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 155th in The Versutian Federation and 107,075th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 12 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
