Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Abyssal Caverns of PurgatoryHell is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Man in the Suit with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, otherworldly petting zoo, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.674 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 2.9%.

The frighteningly efficient PurgatoryHellspawn economy, worth an astonishing 10,390 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 528,148 I-O-U -es, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,774,853 per year while the poor average 53,719, a ratio of 51.7 to 1.

Carpet bombing has decimated Brasilistan's landscape and population, political activists are routinely executed, the booming slave trade is now government-funded, and drug-related crimes carry the death penalty. 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 167,851st in the world and 20th in Future Earth for Nudest, with 2.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
