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 remarkable for its public floggings, parental licensing program, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 16.921 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 8.6%.

The frighteningly efficient PurgatoryHellspawn economy, worth a remarkable 8,064 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 frequent. Average income is an amazing 476,596 I-O-U -es, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,796,868 per year while the poor average 37,938, a ratio of 73.7 to 1.

Assault rifles sized for 7-year-olds are a frighteningly popular export, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, the workforce is almost entirely made up of slave labour, and bloodthirsty zealots regularly participate in the Friday Night Stoning of Adulterers. 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 1,459th in 10000 Islands and 137,966th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -296 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
