The Empire of Pullenstein is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 25.723 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded 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.

Organ donation rates have hit a new low, travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, 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 86th in Lazarus and 1,164th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 12 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
