|Leader||Emperor Pudu Jilang Dengmu|
|Faith||the Church of the Anukai|
The Pantokratic Dominate of Emperor Pudu is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Pudu Jilang Dengmu with an iron fist, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, sprawling nuclear power plants, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 29.546 billion Pudites are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hollarum. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Pudite economy, worth a remarkable 5,391 trillion gold crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 182,493 gold crowns, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 604,395 per year while the poor average 41,159, a ratio of 14.7 to 1.
The nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, the nation's faithful often say there is a higher power watching over them, the act of reporting blasphemy is known as 'Orthodoxxing', and sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Emperor Pudu's national animal is the red-crested crane, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the Church of the Anukai.
