OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Abyssal Caverns of PurgatoryHell is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Man in the Suit with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 14.718 billion 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.

Fishing crews are regularly interrogated by surprisingly violent environmentalists, the people of PurgatoryHell are renowned for their nihilistic attitudes, speaking out against the government is punishable by flogging, and the right to a fair trial was recently abolished for reasons of convenience. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. PurgatoryHell's national animal is the Unsightly Bum, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Waterboarding, and its currency is the I-O-U -e.

PurgatoryHell is ranked 1st in The Versutian Federation and 187th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 23 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
