The Empire of Pullenstein is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 25.206 billion Pullensteinians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although Defence and Education are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pullenstein City. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, followed by Tourism and Information Technology.

Skateparks can be found in every city, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, and politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pullenstein's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the mark.

Pullenstein is ranked 3,368th in Lazarus and 114,267th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -483 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
