The Sovereign Corporation of PQ Forge is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Seven with an iron fist, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 21.488 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 10,248 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 476,949 GPS, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Slavers view "what did your last slave die of" as a request for a demonstration, cleaners are very careful not to bump into the big red button on Seven's desk, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, and the military perceives nations hit by natural disasters as "easy pickings". 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 779th in the world and 1st in NationStates for Largest Black Market, with 1,691 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
