The Cloud Cuckooland of Rhina is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sargon The Grape with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, frequent executions, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 20.637 billion Rhinese have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Akkad. The average income tax rate is 9.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rhinese economy, worth a remarkable 2,972 trillion liens a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 144,049 liens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter, teach an angler how to phish and he can make a living, more citizens have access to Maxtopian Grass than clean drinking water, and basket-weaving is the nation's latest fad. Crime is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Rhina's national animal is the Grimm, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The New Faith.

Rhina is ranked 13,250th in the world and 6th in New Hyperion for Smartest Citizens, with 79.8 quips per hour.
