The Spudtacular Matriarchy of Pulsroth is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Laura Hickling-Norder SM with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 13.377 billion Pulsrothites 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Forsinard. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Pulsrothi economy, worth a remarkable 2,650 trillion Pulse Yen a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 198,168 Pulse Yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Even God cannot save you in Pulsroth, those who cut young children are told to cut it out, community organizers have given up going door to door because nobody is home, and prematurely retired barristers twitch in anxiety when they talk about their courtroom experiences. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pulsroth's national animal is the Wenlock Wyvern, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Té Tara.

Pulsroth is ranked 24,215th in the world and 24th in Spiritus for Rudest Citizens, with 105.27 insults per minute.
