The Federal Republic of Rheinlands is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, democratic population of 742 million Rheinlandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hannover. The average income tax rate is 16.6%.

The very strong Rheinlandian economy, worth 50.4 trillion marks a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 67,929 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Crocodile roadkill is smeared across the asphalt of the new Formula One track, large sections of Rheinlands have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there, airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, and school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Rheinlands's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Rheinlands is ranked 189,937th in the world and 135th in Valley of Peace for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -7 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
