Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Hipster Republic of Rhine Ruhr is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Jeffery with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 8.604 billion Rhinians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Spirituality and Environment not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Düsseldorf. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Rhine Ruhrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,241 trillion Rhinian guilders a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 144,349 Rhinian guilders, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 869,999 per year while the poor average 10,772, a ratio of 80.8 to 1.

Bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, and the government is engaging in an agricultural trade war with Maxtopia. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Rhine Ruhr's national animal is the Bulbasaur, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Rhine Ruhr is ranked 9th in European Union and 950th in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 95 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
