The Empire of Pullenstein is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 38.104 billion Pullensteinians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, with Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. 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 an astonishing 13,423 trillion marks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 352,286 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation refuses to provide international aid, space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Pullenstein, Leader shrugs in the face of growing inequalities, and both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade. Crime is totally unknown. Pullenstein's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pullenstein is ranked 205,947th in the world and 7,734th in Lazarus for Most Avoided, scoring 0.27 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
