The Disgusting Purulence of Pus for Brains is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bub with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.609 billion Pus Heads enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rhodes Island. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.0%.

The powerhouse zombified economy, worth 454 trillion infected brains a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 81,032 infected brains, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 517,769 per year while the poor average 5,200, a ratio of 99.6 to 1.

Zombified-made cars tend to catch fire in people's driveways, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, the flesh-eating lost souls that wander at night serve as a major tourist attraction (Pus for Brains has found 5 easter eggs), and murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Pus for Brains's national animal is the tasty brain, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Zombism.

Pus for Brains is ranked 237,241st in the world and 3rd in The Zombie Factory for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -10.95 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
