The Abyssal Caverns of PurgatoryHell is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Man in the Suit with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 15.271 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 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Automobile Manufacturing.

Cities are engulfed by smog, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, chemically brainwashed citizens praise The Man in the Suit's name on an hourly basis, and fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits. 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 225th in The Versutian Federation and 112,173rd in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring -97 on the Enoch Index.
