The Hipster Republic of Rhine Ruhr is a colossal, 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 7.854 billion 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 is mainly concerned with Defence, although Education and Healthcare are secondary priorities. 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 9th in European Union and 2,960th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 37 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
