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 closed borders, otherworldly petting zoo, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.643 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, 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 40.0%.

The frighteningly efficient PurgatoryHellspawn economy, worth an astonishing 11,434 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 rampant. Average income is a breathtaking 613,364 I-O-U -es, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,419,507 per year while the poor average 54,928, a ratio of 62.3 to 1.

There has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors, Ollie the Oiled Seal welcomes throngs of tourists to the newly opened Oil Oasis Water Park, and cremation is compulsory for the deceased. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 13th in Ermor and 143,182nd in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring -114 on the Enoch Index.
