Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Pullenstein is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 30.315 billion Pullensteinians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 9,353 trillion marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 308,537 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Calisthenics is a well-known tax-dodging technique, only vaccinated citizens may have free healthcare, the nation's arms dealers guarantee discretion and untraceable transactions, and children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces. Crime is totally unknown. Pullenstein's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pullenstein is ranked 126,548th in the world and 3,626th in Lazarus for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -6.63 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
