The Sovereign Corporation of PQ Forge is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Seven with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, flagrant waste-dumping, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 25.019 billion corporate employees are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chapterhouse Prime. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Corporate Employee economy, worth an astonishing 12,383 trillion GPS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 494,979 GPS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

All gamers have been drafted into the military despite their lack of upper body strength, panicking criminals no longer flush contraband down the toilet, diplomacy falls apart when diplomats drink too much, and the government burgles the houses of holidaying citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. PQ Forge's national animal is the slave labourer, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Prolefeed.

PQ Forge is ranked 233,677th in the world and 546th in NationStates for Highest Drug Use, scoring 5.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
