The Royaume de Nettoyage of Purgatio is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Magnificus-Dominus De La Fayette with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, vat-grown people, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.354 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 44.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Purgation economy, worth a remarkable 1,940 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 305,458 Élites, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Shivering secretaries type letters under torrential downpours in open-roof offices, there's more than one way to skin a diplomat, they say the best compromise leaves everyone feeling a little unarmed, and the nation is relieved that all of the recent madness has finally come to an end. 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 5,202nd in the world and 87th in Europe for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 116.4 Bank.
