The Sovereign Corporation of PQ Forge is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Seven with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, zero percent divorce rate, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.149 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 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 a remarkable 7,015 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 slick, highly efficient, 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 409,118 GPS, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,171,326 per year while the poor average 113,757, a ratio of 10.3 to 1.

Citizens who don't attend the nation's massive military parades tend to disappear overnight, political activists are routinely executed, people regularly disappear off the streets and all evidence of them is destroyed, and the nation is under martial law. 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 136,626th in the world and 378th in NationStates for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring zero on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
