The Empire of Pullenstein is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 25.413 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 secondary priorities. 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.

The number of students attending university has reached a record high, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. 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 3,217th in Lazarus and 105,892nd in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -7 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
