The Purifycatione Mandatus of Purgatio is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Magnificus-Dominus De La Fayette with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, strictly enforced bedtime, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.506 billion Purgations are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Purgation economy, worth 474 trillion Superiovs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 189,349 Superiovs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 917,933 per year while the poor average 22,608, a ratio of 40.6 to 1.

A small country is wondering where their capitol building's gold dome went, the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills, being dead no longer has any benefits, and laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts. 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 64,788th in the world and 368th in Europe for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 70.6 Workforce Participation Rate.
