Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Pullenstein is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 29.419 billion Pullensteinians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt individuals juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pullenstein City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Pullensteinian economy, worth a remarkable 8,520 trillion marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 289,638 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

The tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, it turns out that money can buy you happiness, and meat-eating is frowned upon. Crime is relatively low. Pullenstein's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pullenstein is ranked 5,014th in the world and 199th in Lazarus for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,796.99 Tourists Per Hour.
