OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Empire of Pullenstein is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its restrictive gun laws. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 24.315 billion 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although Defence and Education are secondary priorities. 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.

Shaken martini sales have soared in nations surrounding Pullenstein, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, and discarded pennies litter the streets. 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 751st in Balder and 33,463rd in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.826 Stalins.
