The Sovereign Corporation of PQ Forge is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Seven with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, disturbing lack of elderly people, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 25.271 billion corporate employees are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chapterhouse Prime. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Corporate Employee economy, worth an astonishing 12,365 trillion GPS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 489,317 GPS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The police use sound cannons and mortars to deal with loud parties, you can tell when corporate employees are being snarky by the fact their lips are moving, politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, and doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. PQ Forge's national animal is the slave labourer, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Prolefeed.

PQ Forge is ranked 26,470th in the world and 7th in NationStates for Most Extreme, scoring 35.18 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
