The Empire of Pumexland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Ivar Arg with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 4.893 billion Pumexlandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pumexland City. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pumexlandian economy, worth 831 trillion Umexes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 170,026 Umexes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Warfare increasingly resembles a video game, the government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities, traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers, and future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pumexland's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pumexland is ranked 194,289th in the world and 7,052nd in Osiris for Most Avoided, scoring 0.54 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
