Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Pullenstein is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, rampant corporate plagiarism, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 28.725 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 minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, 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 8,478 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 295,171 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, bicyclists are banned from major roads, murder victims' families receive windfall payouts when the murderers are executed, and several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation. Crime is totally unknown. Pullenstein's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pullenstein is ranked 278th in the world and 10th in Lazarus for Highest Economic Output, with 8,478 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
