OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Empire of Pullenstein is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 24.85 billion Pullensteinians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent 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.

A new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, long arduous trials are held for the most trivial of offences, protests are prohibited from blocking traffic, and retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites. 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 2,233rd in Lazarus and 85,972nd in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -54 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
