Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Hipster Republic of Rhine Ruhr is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Jeffery with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, frequent executions, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 8.431 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.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. 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 1,212 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, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 143,784 Rhinian guilders, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 890,667 per year while the poor average 10,014, a ratio of 88.9 to 1.

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 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 89th in European Union and 114,578th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -185 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
