Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Imperial Dominion of Pulcifer is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Viceroy James de Riven with a fair hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, prohibition of alcohol, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.236 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 96.7%.

The large but stagnant Pulciferian economy, worth 365 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 24,001 Viceregal Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, military funding has been stripped back, and citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling". 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 190th in Osiris and 3,635th in the world for Safest, scoring 1,195.325 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
