Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

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 public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.726 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 37.8%.

The frighteningly efficient PurgatoryHellspawn economy, worth an astonishing 10,217 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 576,404 I-O-U -es, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,382,583 per year while the poor average 45,882, a ratio of 73.7 to 1.

Airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, governments opposing PurgatoryHell are beset by rebels, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, and fur coats have become the latest fashion trend. 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.
