Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Pullenstein is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 30.882 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 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 9,610 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 311,195 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

You need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and the nation has nearly as many history museums as Pullensteinians. Crime is totally unknown. Pullenstein's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pullenstein is ranked 112,159th in the world and 3,575th in Lazarus for Most Income Equality, scoring 21.99 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
