The Sovereign Corporation of PQ Forge is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Seven with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 18.202 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 minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. 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 a remarkable 7,975 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 438,178 GPS, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,274,527 per year while the poor average 119,172, a ratio of 10.7 to 1.

Banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, at the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold, children who can't memorize their multiplication tables are sent to the mines, and weapons produced by newly nationalized armaments factories have been found to contain sawdust instead of gunpowder. 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 29,081st in the world and 33rd in NationStates for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 10.69 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
