The Royaume de Nettoyage of Purgatio is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Magnificus-Dominus De La Fayette with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, infamous sell-swords, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.022 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ravaliér. The average income tax rate is 41.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Purgation economy, worth a remarkable 1,832 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 304,245 Élites, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished, nerdy teenagers have to prove that they're made of the same stuff as their grandparents, diplomatic fallout tends to be much more dangerous than radioactive fallout, and bored sailors desperately hope that someone will shoot at them. 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 2,119th in the world and 29th in Europe for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 177,375.04 Standard Monetary Units.
