The Magical Kingdom of Eternal Purgatory is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Walt Disney with an iron fist, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, free-roaming dinosaurs, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.932 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, moralistic, 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 1,497 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, Pizza Delivery, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 188,838 Coins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 889,667 per year while the poor average 23,800, a ratio of 37.4 to 1.

Chrome-clad space marines are such stuff that dreams are made on, students in Eternal Purgatory's schools rarely attend their classes, video evidence of cruel animal experiments tends to be of poor quality, and art criticism in Eternal Purgatory is scathingly destructive. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 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 168,874th in the world and 7th in Disney World for Most Cultured, scoring 8 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
