The Empire of Pullenstein is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, compulsory military service, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 37.897 billion Pullensteinians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, although Defense is also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pullenstein City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Pullensteinian economy, worth an astonishing 13,459 trillion marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 355,173 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The carbon footprint falls along with the human footprint during war, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Pullensteinian Liberator", court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, and selfie stick use is a required Scout badge. Crime is totally unknown. Pullenstein's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pullenstein is ranked 145,991st in the world and 5,458th in Lazarus for Most Pro-Market, scoring 30.78 on the Rand Index.
