Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Pullenstein is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 26.515 billion Pullensteinians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, although Defense and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pullenstein City. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Pullensteinian economy, worth a remarkable 8,343 trillion marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 314,658 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, the Coast Guard is pioneering a quixotic program to train fish, nine out of ten citizens of Pullenstein answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation, and religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else. 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.

Pullenstein is ranked 4,658th in Lazarus and 140,521st in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with -161 Whatever.
