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 remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, sprawling nuclear power plants, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.466 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 7.7%.

The frighteningly efficient PurgatoryHellspawn economy, worth an astonishing 11,094 trillion I-O-U -es a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is a breathtaking 542,070 I-O-U -es, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,908,916 per year while the poor average 52,738, a ratio of 55.2 to 1.

Legions of police officers force people to move into massive urban apartments, giant no-kill traps baited with Bapst Red Ribbon and vintage bicycles have been popping up in back alleys nationwide, vets have been drafted in to help "fix" those who fail the parental license exam, and roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews. 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 12,871st in the world and 11th in The Versutian Federation for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 5,713.36 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
