The Empire of Pullenstein is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 38.751 billion Pullensteinians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, although Defense is also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. 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 13,966 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 360,420 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The people's love for Leader is little more than self-preservation, the national census includes an opt-in to join the government-run dating service, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have. Crime is totally unknown. Pullenstein's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pullenstein is ranked 916th in the world and 33rd in Lazarus for Most Beautiful Environments, with 4,506.74 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
