The Hipster Republic of Rhine Ruhr is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Jeffery with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 1.132 billion, 15 million of whom are zombies, Rhine Ruhrians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business individuals concentrates mainly on Defence, although Education and Healthcare are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Düsseldorf. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining industries.

Employers may fire workers without giving any reason, corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants, and the richest citizens live in sheltered private citadels. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Rhine Ruhr's national animal is the Bulbasaur, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Rhinian guilder.

Rhine Ruhr is ranked 77th in European Union and 99,765th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -3 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.

Rhine Ruhr is currently researching a cure.
