The Rogue Nation of Rhinocerotidae is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Rhino Keras with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, fear of technology, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.549 billion Rhinocerotidaeans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rhino City. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The large but sluggish Rhinocerotidaean economy, worth 657 trillion Rhinoxes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration. Average income is 56,953 Rhinoxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Builders spend more time negotiating "tasteful architecture" than on actual construction, the police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence, hunters often become the hunted, and citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rhinocerotidae's national animal is the Rhinoceros, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rhinocerotidae is ranked 12,205th in the world and 1st in Western Australia for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.94 Years.
