Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Pullenstein is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, rampant corporate plagiarism, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 31.358 billion Pullensteinians are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. 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 a remarkable 9,922 trillion marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 316,435 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter, shopkeepers use microscopes to verify the authenticity of banknotes, the military sees national borders more as guidelines than absolutes, and electricity company executives pray nightly to Zeus and Thor. Crime is totally unknown. Pullenstein's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pullenstein is ranked 148,952nd in the world and 4,638th in Lazarus for Fattest Citizens, with 3.81 Obesity Rate.
