Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Abyssal Caverns of PurgatoryHell is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Man in the Suit with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, public floggings, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.119 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 37.2%.

The frighteningly efficient PurgatoryHellspawn economy, worth a remarkable 9,311 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 543,915 I-O-U -es, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,191,924 per year while the poor average 43,296, a ratio of 73.7 to 1.

Prisons are crowded with possible terrorist suspects, criminals are executed and their property seized, concussed Unsightly Bumball players cannot remember their lineup position, and the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments. 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 1,851st in 10000 Islands and 146,359th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -465 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
