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 keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 15.506 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.

Only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, nudity is frowned upon, all guns must be registered, and citizens are forbidden from leaving the country. 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 2nd in The Versutian Federation and 265th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 678.8 Insults Per Minute (net).
