Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federation of Putal is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, devout population of 1.253 billion Putains are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pamalin. The average income tax rate is 82.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Putain economy, worth 162 trillion Partans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 129,529 Partans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Getting an infected tattoo is considered a rite of passage in Putal, Pamalin spends billions upgrading public transport, priests are being drafted by the church load, and elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Putal's national animal is the Boar, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Putal is ranked 129,683rd in the world and 6,371st in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -8.25 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
