The Magical Kingdom of Eternal Purgatory is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Walt Disney with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, enslaved workforce, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.7 billion Purgatoryians 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 minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Spirituality, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Purgatory. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Eternal Purgatoryian economy, worth a remarkable 1,925 trillion Coins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an impressive 198,542 Coins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,668,652 per year while the poor average 4,477, a ratio of 372 to 1.

An eye for an eye leaves Eternal Purgatory blind, terrorist videos start by thanking their sponsors, garden stores are not allowed to sell water butts, and Walt Disney can often be found attempting to coax random citizens' cats down from trees. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Eternal Purgatory's national animal is the Mickey Mouse, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Yodlism.

Eternal Purgatory is ranked 1,282nd in the world and 2nd in Disney World for Highest Crime Rates, with 43.83 Crimes Per Hour.
