Rhinelans Seud

Population262 million


The Federation of Rhinelans Seud is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 262 million Rhinelans Seudians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid and Social Policy aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.8%.

The thriving Rhinelans Seudian economy, worth 17.2 trillion deniers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Basket Weaving, and Gambling. Average income is 65,595 deniers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 329,949 per year while the poor average 7,288, a ratio of 45.3 to 1.

Truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, group hugs break out during floor votes, there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, and pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Rhinelans Seud's national animal is the emu, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Rhinelans Seud is ranked 93,179th in the world and 102nd in Federation of Conservative Nations for Longest Average Lifespans, with 60.67 Years.
