The Hipster Republic of Rhine Ruhr is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Jeffery with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 11.37 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 1,701 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 major contributions from Soda Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 149,689 Rhinian guilders, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 920,850 per year while the poor average 10,612, a ratio of 86.8 to 1.

Men avoid even so much as looking at female colleagues, birth rates have hit an all-time low, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, and Düsseldorf's iconic yellow taxis are nowhere to be seen. 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 165,838th in the world and 120th in European Union for Lowest Crime Rates, with 4.43 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
