The Empire of Pullenstein is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 38.374 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 13,717 trillion marks a year, is 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 357,477 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers, the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, the number of deaths due to poor fungus identification is mushrooming, and the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments. Crime is totally unknown. Pullenstein's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pullenstein is ranked 226,965th in the world and 8,477th in Lazarus for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -68.26 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
