Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

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 public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.5 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 tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stull Cemetary. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.2%.

The large but stagnant PurgatoryHellspawn economy, worth 572 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 32,701 I-O-U -es, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 214,480 per year while the poor average 1,952, a ratio of 109 to 1.

The government's official position on invasive species is 'who cares?', breastfeeding mothers are replacing smokers to loiter outside the workplace, prices fluctuate manically for no fathomable reason, and hairdressers are among those who have disappeared overnight. 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 3rd in 10000 Islands and 102nd in the world for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 17 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
