The Empire of Pullenstein is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 25.992 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, with Defense and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pullenstein City. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Pullensteinian economy, worth a remarkable 7,900 trillion marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 303,956 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, the nation refuses to provide international aid, Pullenstein has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, and new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Pullenstein to be bombproof. 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 104th in Lazarus and 1,578th in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 10 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
