New Rheinsland

The Federation of New Rheinsland is a very large, socially progressive nation, notable for its compulsory military service and avant-garde cinema. The democratic population of 191 million New Rheinslandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 20.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient New Rheinslandian economy, worth 7.53 trillion Frontier Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 39,412 Frontier Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, biker gangs and fashionistas are converting to Violetism en masse, cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, and spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Rheinsland's national animal is the Vicuņa.

New Rheinsland is ranked 34,615th in the world and 1,170th in Balder for Most Income Equality, scoring 59.49 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
