There's a saying that 'the punishment should fit the crime'. That being the case, I might expect the likes of war criminals and torturers to end up in such a place, since they caused so much pain and misery to others; but certainly not ordinary people who, although not caring for the spiritual life, nevertheless did not cause others such pain and misery.
We should keep this in perspective. You would have to do some pretty bad things to end up there! Note that the Buddha keeps saying "Yet he does not die, until his demerit finishes."That implies that it's all very precise, this working out of kamma. There is a time limit, because (I would presume) the Law of Cause and Effect is perfect and operates precisely. (Or doesn't it? Any further information here?)
Then the Blessed One, picking up a tiny bit of dust with the tip of his fingernail, said to the monk, "There isn't even this much form...feeling...
perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."
