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 complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 15.841 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.

Visitors to the famed rainforests are instead taken to vast furniture factories, the workforce is almost entirely made up of slave labour, strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, and government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet. 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 165th in The Versutian Federation and 112,215th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 7 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
