Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Pullenstein is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, prohibition of alcohol, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 29.268 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.

The tiny, corrupt government 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 8,751 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 299,002 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Pullensteinian Liberator". Crime is totally unknown. Pullenstein's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pullenstein is ranked 20,310th in the world and 931st in Lazarus for Largest Governments, scoring 27.09 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
