The Demon Vampyre Prince of Rhyme and Reason is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.522 billion Philosophers are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athens. The average income tax rate is 33.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Rhyme and Reasonian economy, worth 145 trillion Rhymes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 41,391 Rhymes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, and Rhyme and Reason has designated Athens as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Rhyme and Reason's national animal is the Owl.

Rhyme and Reason is ranked 125,254th in the world and 93rd in Grace of Gaia for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 376.28 Tourists Per Hour.
