The Imperial Dominion of Pulcifer is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Viceroy James de Riven with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.729 billion Pulciferians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Azrael. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The large but stagnant Pulciferian economy, worth 353 trillion Viceregal Marks a year, is driven entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 24,008 Viceregal Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, the upper class have been throwing riots after hunting was recently banned, all weapon research has been banned, and torture is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pulcifer's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Pulcifer is ranked 545th in Osiris and 12,601st in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 171 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
