The Pantokratic Dominate of Emporer Pudu is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Pudu Jilang Dengmu with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 32.327 billion Pudites are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hollarum. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Pudite economy, worth an astonishing 17,709 trillion gold crowns a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is a breathtaking 547,815 gold crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, the endangered saltwater humpback red-crested crane is only seen in captivity programs, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, and concert halls sport signs proclaiming "No Shorts, Sandals or Swastikas". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Emporer Pudu's national animal is the red-crested crane, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Church of the Anukai.

Emporer Pudu is ranked 35,714th in the world and 1st in The Dark Lands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 5,161.2 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
