The Sovereign Corporation of PQ Forge is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Seven with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, triple-decker prams, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 16.576 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, with Industry and 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 a remarkable 6,519 trillion GPS a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 393,303 GPS, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,550,804 per year while the poor average 67,615, a ratio of 22.9 to 1.

Public loudspeakers constantly tell citizens they are "happy people", pro-democracy protesters are shot on sight by state police, death row is annually emptied to feed the nation's hunger for televised murder-games, and at the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold. 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 Capitalism.

PQ Forge is ranked 763rd in the world and 4th in NationStates for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 19,702.82 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
