The Royaume du Nettoyage of Purgatio is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Magnificus-Dominus De La Fayette with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, complete lack of prisons, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.899 billion Purgations are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ravaliér. The average income tax rate is 43.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Purgation economy, worth a remarkable 2,104 trillion Élites a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 304,998 Élites, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Government statisticians explain census inaccuracies by declaring that "Sith happens", lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, Magnificus-Dominus De La Fayette can't hear a thing when the unwashed masses throw rocks at the new state limousine, and executions often take hours as amateurs attempt to find veins. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Purgatio's national animal is the Viper, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Mandatum Est.

Purgatio is ranked 214,413th in the world and 1,300th in Europe for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -30.98 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
