The Enlightened Emirate of Puetavisa is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emir Hannibal al-Sa'id with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, complete lack of prisons, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.746 billion Puetavisans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tazadajara. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Puetavistan economy, worth a remarkable 1,316 trillion dinars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 195,199 dinars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

After every storm there's an expensive government-funded rainbow, Emir Hannibal al-Sa'id has declared a weed sticking through a crack in the sidewalk to be the nation's newest green space, bins outnumber trees in city parks, and the nation is wading into dangerous waters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Puetavisa's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Red Islamism.

Puetavisa is ranked 23,237th in the world and 14th in The Wolf Clan for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,074.34 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
