The Empire of Rhinocera is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Supreme Consul Tiberius with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 14.376 billion Rhinocerans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crete. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Rhinoceran economy, worth a remarkable 3,829 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 266,407 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 958,207 per year while the poor average 53,016, a ratio of 18.1 to 1.

Supreme Consul Tiberius lights cigars with a hundred-dollar bill, the newest East Lebatuckese coins have "long live East Lebatuck" on heads and "death to Rhinocera" on tails, college-level writing classes are taught by undergraduate editors of the school newspaper, and several inches are being added to first class seating. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rhinocera's national animal is the rhinoceros, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Rhinocera is ranked 76,282nd in the world and 1st in Panessos for Most Authoritarian, with 789.24 milliStalins.
