The Kingdom of Rheinland-Westphalia is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by König Georg Friedrich with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, prohibition of alcohol, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 786 million Rheinland-Westphalians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Köln. The average income tax rate is 49.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Rheinland-Westphalian economy, worth 80.1 trillion Deutsche-Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 101,856 Deutsche-Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The controversial show 'Who Wants to be an Immigrant?' has become wildly popular, economists claim no news is good news, personal injury lawyers are demanding compensation from the government after recent reductions in manufacturer liability, and König Georg Friedrich has just been declared ruler of Rheinland-Westphalia in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rheinland-Westphalia's national animal is the Black Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Rheinland-Westphalia is ranked 40,555th in the world and 567th in Europe for Longest Average Lifespans, with 81.1 years.
