The Carefully Guided Sprawl of Pulsroth is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Laura Hickling-Norder SM with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, parental licensing program, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.201 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 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Pulsrothi economy, worth a remarkable 2,373 trillion Pulse Yen a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 194,552 Pulse Yen, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Aeroplane cockpits no longer have altimeters or airspeed indicators, bicyclists are banned from major roads, wait staff claim to like it when odorous customers flirt with them, and there's never enough space in space. 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 238,212th in the world and 287th in Spiritus for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 29.2 Whatever.
