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 anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 16.177 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.

The police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, police officers have nearly cracked a major underage astronomy syndicate, and terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums. 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 21st in The Versutian Federation and 4,819th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 98 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
