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 multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, vat-grown people, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 34.294 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, although Industry is also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hollarum. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Pudite economy, worth an astonishing 19,052 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 555,553 gold crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out, the government keeps its thumb on the scales of justice, gossip magazines are more interested in astrological stars than celebrity ones, and people forget to eat because they are too busy singing Emperor Pudu Jilang Dengmu's praises. 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 393rd in the world and 1st in The Dark Lands for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 19,316.44 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
